Certainly any high latency tests you might want to perform are well entrusted to us.
We'll start with - Bring your test users but probably will also try to - Attach your own storage back-end later.
We are interested in Terena Trusted cloud drive pilot. From our side, Peter Kacin (cc) will be the guy to talk to, so please add both of us to the mailing list.
|Ongoing tendering and procurement of storage hardware. Universities might want to install the TERENA Cloud Drive to provide storage service on top of the raw storage capacity.|
|CESNET is willing to install an instance of the Cloud Drive for experimental purposes.|

|I had been exploring different opportunities of collaborating on the cloud technologies and found interest in cloud pilot. Do let me know if its possible and feasible for us to get involved with this initiative.|
At this stage we looking for information for a possible more official commit in the future.
As far as the reasons go, we already use filesender and are happy with it, and we see interest from the community on storage services beyond commercial available services.
The planned contribution is to test the software, set up a test storage backend and generally participate on the initiative (it's worth to mention that we don't have dedicated resources devoted for this. That is to say that we would have difficulty on doing resource hungry taks.
We're evaluating installing the cloud platform at our location for experimental purposes (01/10/2012)
We are interested in participating, and our focus will be in the following item from the Phase II description: Attach your own storage back-end to the platform installed at TERENA Offices Specifically, to attach our own OpenStack-derived platform as a storage back-end.
Concerning GRNET, our efforts will focus on providing a bridge to connect from the GRNET storage service (Pithos+) to the cloud pilot. Right now the Cloud Pilot includes support for Amazon S3 and JClouds; we use an OpenStack compatible API, so we will be going for an OpenStack / Pithos+ interface to the cloud interface.
We would be interested but resources are a problem and the priority is our own storage project currently.
An instance might be run by a Hungarian university. To be investigated.
We might offer some test storage resources controlled by OpenStack Swift and/or plug into your system some WebDAV enabled storage.
In addition we might spend some hours on reviewing the code and/or penetration testing of your pilot installation.
SECURITY AUDIT; Our current plans regarding the local installation include:
- doing some stress / functional testing
- checking if your solution will work with S3-enabled OpenStack swift
- performing a security audit (I am adding Gerard and Pawel from security department in CC)

Congratulations to PSNC for the first installation of the tool at an NREN location!
|RedIRIS||Antonio Fuentes Bermejo||Currently we are driving our efforts to bring cloud services, and we are studying what kind of cloud services could be offered to the RedIRIS Research community.|
Recently, we constructed a cloud storage based on the OpenStack Swift. We took a look on the phase 2 webpage and noted that it is possible to integrate other clouds to the TERENA Trusted Cloud Drive.
We are interested in integrating our cloud to your solution. Thus, we would like to know what are the requisites for this.
OpenStack Swift S3 test/development
|SURFnet is running a pilot with Unhosted.org. It has the priority to federate the service and make more and more applications available under the service. In a later phase, integration with TERENA Cloud Drive might be considered.|
We are interested for the following reason: Higher Education Users are increasinglgy asking for a cloud shared storage. I'm thinking about students, but also researchers and teaching staff may be interested in this. We are evaluating which solution could adress the need of users best in the future. The TTCD is one possibility and I'm interested about the future developments in that project and the uptake of other NRENs of TTCD, how they see the place of a service based on the TTCD in their portfolio.

I am part of the Blue Brain Project, based at EPFL. Our long-term goal is to build a facility to help the worldwide community of neuroscientists work in the understanding of the brain and its processes.
My understanding of this second phase of the pilot is that will enable secure cloud-like sharing based on established federations and this sounds very interesting to me. Especially from the perspective of federations and how insightful could be for us in moving towards our long-term goals.

|We at the University of Porto are very interested in participating in this TERENA Trusted Cloud Drive. For now we would like to have access to it and maybe in the future we can contribute with some storage space, if needed.|

access problem SOLVED
I will get back on Monday with details in what parts we'll get involved (and will find some human-ware available).
Srce is running a storage service based on GRNET's GSS. GSS won't be supported by GRNET any more. Srce is looking for migrations options. TERENA Trusted Cloud Drive could be an option (being evaluated).

In this second phase, we can initially collaborate providing feedback from our constituency test users and after attaching our own storage backend.
CESCA will provide the infrastructure needed to make a local installation of the cloud platform.
To share the information and open source code of the DAV client developed by CERN. The client must be tested with the TERENA Trusted Cloud Drive platform.
Here is, as promised, a link to our DAV client DAVIX.
