Storage & service in the cloud

VISION Cloud focuses on innovative cloud storage. The explosion of personal and organisational digital data has been recognised as one of the most significant characteristics of the decade. Generated data is simply growing faster than we can store it!

The goal of VISION Cloud is to develop a cloud-based infrastructure to provide a scalable, flexible and dependable framework for storage services. It will be built on open standards and new technologies. VISION Cloud aims to show how workflows will be supported significantly in terms of productivity, quality, reliability and cost.

Deutsche Welle is a user partner and contributes to news use case, validation and dissemination.

The project runs from Oct 2010 – Sep 2013
