Open Science Clouds necessarily build on existing global e-infrastructures, including provision of high-speed academic networks, high performance computing, cloud computing, and so on. Among the objectives is to facilitate connectivity among international e-Infrastructures at national, regional, and global level, provide lightweight federation solutions and improve interoperability between different systems, and support international research collaborations.
There are numerous important topics for e-infrastructure cooperation, alignment and interoperability, including: network connectivity and protocols, secure Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure (AAI), and mechanisms for federation of computing and other services.
