Helix Nebula Chooses SlipStream

18 March 2013

This week Helix Nebula – the science cloud started its Pilot Phase with SlipStream, created by SixSq. SlipStream will allow Helix Nebula users (CERN, ESA and EMBL) to provision complex cloud applications, on several IaaS clouds in parallel, automatically.

During the Pilot Phase, CERN, ESA and EMBL will test their ability to manage several cloud services, such that they can better distribute and consume cloud resources, in a federated manner. SlipStream is initially configured to connect to Atos’s Helix Nebula Scientific Cloud Service, CloudSigma’s Public Cloud and Interoute’s Virtual Data Center (VDC) Service.

The Pilot Phase will run for several months, providing valuable experience to the users, so that they can better integrate the new Helix Nebula federated cloud resource in their own provisioning processes.

More information on SlipStream is available.
