Speaking in Switzerland About File Sync and Share for Education and Research

Posted by ownCloud GmbH – 12. January 2016

On January 18-19, I will give a talk about ownCloud at the ETH University in Zürich, Switzerland. There, the Cloud Services for Synchronization and Sharing (CS3) takes place, with a focus this year on Cloud Storage Services for Novel Applications and Workflows. CS3 focuses on share experiences and progress in cloud storage services among universities and research institutions.

According to the website:

“The usage of recently deployed services in the scientific community is rapidly expanding. Users are actively interested in new solutions for their growing data needs: new tools and enhanced data sharing capabilities enable new solutions. At the same time, the technology space is quickly evolving and many research institutes, service providers, software development teams and companies look into different approaches in the area of Cloud Services for Synchronization and Sharing.”

This is the second in this series of events of this name, the first having taken place at CERN, famous home to the world’s largest particle accelerator and inventors of the World Wide Web.

While I will speak about the future of Federated Sync and Share, there are many other sessions in the program, covering performance and scaling, global data distribution, data analysis and processing, scientific computing and more.

If you are interested in using cloud technologies in research or scaling to massive deployments, this is an event worth visiting. If you do come, be sure to come and say hi!

ownCloud will be presented in 8 different talks.
