Using Cloud for Research: A Technical Review

The purpose of the TeciRes project was to conduct a technical review of the current landscape within cloud computing to establish the extent to which existing solutions meet encountered and envisioned requirements for using emerging cloud technologies, in particular those which enable computing and storage cloud facilities for research in Higher Education (HE) institutions, and to make recommendations on further development, guidance, and standardisation. The TeciRes project is one of three parallel projects funded by JISC, the other two complementary projects being a review of "Using cloud computing" focusing on cloud use cases from users' perspectives, and a review of "Environmental and organisational" Implications of cloud computing in Higher Education (HE) and further education sectors.
