EUBrazil Cloud Connect is a project funded under the second Eu-Brazil coordinated call under the topic Cloud computing for Science. It aims is to create an intercontinental federated e-infrastructure for scientific usage. This e-infrastructure joins resources from different frameworks, like private clouds, supercomputing and opportunistic desktop resources to offer the community high level scientific gateways and programming models. EUBrazil Cloud Connect develops 3 Use Cases. One in particular deals with climate change and biodiversity scientific research.The demo will give a complete overview of the Use Case 3 by showing how the different experiments and data sources have been seamlessly integrated into the BioClimate Scientific Gateway. Both batch and interactive experiments will be demonstrated on different data sources (by inferring a set of climate and biodiversity indicators) jointly with additional features like the clearinghouse one.

All demos run on high-quality screens in the networking area during coffee and lunch breaks.
When system design does not take deployment architectures and costs into account, the savings of cloud computing are difficult to realize. The ENVISAGE project develops formal behavioral models that integrate data modeling, control flow, resource usage, and static and dynamic deployment and scaling decisions. Static analysis methods help with establishing confidence and calculating worst-case cost; simulation and visualization tools enable gaining insights into whole-system behavior already during the modeling and design phase.
The Cloudwatch project (Sep 2013 - Oct 2025) collected input from almost 50 projects on the importance of Cloud computing characteristics as defined by NIST for their respective outcomes and results. Preliminary data analysis showed promising results, and the Cloudwatch2 follow-on project continues to collect responses. The demonstration will showcase two major usage scenarios of the publicly available web application: a) Cloud computing sector stakeholders may contribute their input using the web application; b) Same stakeholders can also use the tool to analyse the cloud landscape on-demand.
Distributed Systems, Services, APIs testing is hard, complex, time-consuming, costly in effort and equipment. simplyTestify is a Software as a Service deployed on a public cloud infrastructure that provides extreme test automation of synchronous, asynchronous, time-constrained, large scale, multi-owner distributed systems, services and APIs. Testing features are provided through a self-provisioning, pay-as-you-go, lower cost business model implemented by an highly elastic, available, reliable and secure SaaS on a public cloud infrastructure.
Open source software does not only facilitate cost-effective alternatives to commercial offers, open source projects also provide innovation solutions based on state of the art technology research. However, many projects are yet in a pre-product stage that makes early adoption challenging and risky. The AppHub service platform provides an easy access to European innovation. Open source project software are presented as ready-to-run packages that can be executed on a broad range of cloud service infrastructures, enterprise private clouds, virtual or physical infrastructures. This helps accelerate open source software adoption.
We propose a security certification framework for the cloud, which implements a test-based certification scheme. Our certification framework consists of a distributed architecture based on agents and probes, which collects evidence at the basis of certification activities. The framework uses an approach similar to xUnit testing framework, while it is model-based, generic, and suitable for distributed systems. The demo will show a real certification process that involves activities at all layers of the cloud stack, specifically targeting generic cloud applications and security services deployed on top of OpenStack.
Accountability for an organisation consists of accepting responsibility for data with which it is entrusted in a cloud ecosystem. This demo will show how accountability mechanisms (in particular, tools) enable organisations in being accountable in cloud ecosystems. The demo will emphasise how the combination of different tools support accountability through a demonstration in a realistic cloud supply chain. The demo will point out the use of the tools for accountability from the viewpoints of different stakeholders in a cloud ecosystem.
The SPECS project proposes an innovative Security Platform-as-a-Service that offers a solution for the SPECS’ Security-as-a-Service approach, based on SLA life cycle management. SPECS platform enables the delivering of security services, described in details through Security SLAs. Cloud Service Customers (CSCs) are able to define at fine grain level the security features they need through a user-centric negotiation of Cloud SLA, that helps CSCs to negotiate Security Services offered by Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), by understanding the resulting trade-offs.
In Cloud computing, both the public and private sectors are already offering Cloud resources as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). However, there are numerous areas of interest to scientific communities where Cloud Computing uptake is currently lacking, especially at the PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) levels. In this context, INDIGO-DataCloud (INtegrating Distributed data Infrastructures for Global ExplOitation), aims at developing a data & computing platform targeted at scientific communities, deployable on multiple hardware, and provisioned over hybrid e-Infrastructures.
