This paper has been accepted and selected for presentation within the Cloud Tools Lab part of IEEE LatinCloud 2014 event. It presents the Fogbow middleware, an approach based on a peer-to-peer architecture that aims at creating a cloud federation from totally distributed and independently IaaS deployments. Fogbow allows local cloud users to use surplus resources coming from other members of the federation, while being minimally intrusive regarding existing IaaS deployments. EUBrazilCC project represents one of the deployment cases of fogbow; in EUBrazilCC a federated cloud is running that comprises private clouds managed by both OpenStack and OpenNebula.

The EU-Brazil Cloud Connect (EUBrazilCC) project is being developed with three scientific use cases covering multidisciplinary areas, such as biodiversity, epidemiology, public health, and climate change. One of the scientific use cases is the Leishmaniasis Virtual Laboratory (LVL), a collaboration between the Instituto de Salud Carlos III (WHO-CCL Leishmania Collection) in Spain and FIOCRUZ in Brazil with the collections of Leishmania (CLIOC) and sand flies (COLFLEB). The aim of this work is to present the LVL use case to the sand fly research community and to provide a pipeline to perform molecular analyses of sand flies.
