Francisco Brasileiro

Full Professor, Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil

"The federation of resources provided by institutions in both sides of the Atlantic and supported by the federation middleware developed and adapted by the EUBrazilCC team enabled the successful execution of the project's three very challenging uses cases. Moreover, the fact that RNP is considering the use of fogbow as a federation middleware for its cloud initiative will make it in many ways interoperable with the EGI FedCloud, giving a good prospect of sustainable collaborations between Brazilian and European researchers using these distributed infrastructures."
