      • 14:00 DEEP - Hybrid DataCloud 45'
        "The key concept proposed in the DEEP Hybrid DataCloud project is the need to support intensive computing techniques that require specialized HPC hardware, like GPUs or low-latency interconnects, to explore very large datasets. A Hybrid Cloud approach enables the access to such resources that are not easily reachable by the researchers at the scale needed in the current EU e-infrastructure."
        Toni Pérez: "What I most like about their architecture is that the application desired virtual or physical architecture is defined in TOSCA language, and the INDIGO/Infrastructure Management component provisions the needed nodes either locally ore on cloud, to process de data to analyse"
