The Global Open Science Cloud International Programme Office (GOSC IPO) is launching a series of lightweight online webinars tailored to diverse stakeholders within GOSC communities.  The inaugural webinar, titled “Cloud Federation Technology and Application: YunKun Software System,” will take place on May 20-24.

This training is supported by the CSTCloud team and is free of charge. The training programme is organised in partnership with the African Institute for Capacity Development (AICAD), led by Professor Joseph Muliaro Wafula, and which is one of the inaugural nodes of the African Open Science Platform.

Registration is required at:

To fulfil the mission of AICAD, AOSP and GOSC, the training program is primarily targeted towards African researchers and data scientists.  However, as a free online event, the programme will be open to all interested colleagues.

Training Overview
In this training program, participants will immerse themselves in the dynamic realm of cloud technology, specifically focusing on CSTCloud’s Yunkun Software System. The entire training program is divided into two parts, each tailored to different levels of expertise. The first part is tailored for general cloud users, with the goal of empowering African data scientists and domain experts by providing a thorough grasp of GOSC cloud federation technology. It also offers practical insights into the utilization of virtual machines and object storage services. The second part targets cloud SysOps engineers with a solid grasp of cloud technology. These courses will facilitate hands-on sessions focusing on the installation and application of EVCloud and IHarbor within the Yunkun system.

Target Trainees & Objectives
