SUNFISH, which stands for “SecUre iNFormatIon SHaring in federated heterogeneous private clouds“, is a Horizon2020 funded project included within the Advanced Cloud Infrastructure and Services research stream, started in January 2015.
Today the European Public Sector players lack the necessary infrastructure and technology to allow them to integrate their computing clouds. Furthermore, legislative barriers often make it difficult to use available commercial technological solutions.
The SUNFISH project aims to provide a specific and new solution to face these issues.
SUNFISH will enable the secure federation of private clouds based on the Public Sector needs: federated private clouds belonging to different Public Sector Entities will be able to share data and services transparently, while maintaining required security levels. The SUNFISH project will develop and integrate software enabling secure cloud federation as required by European Public Sector bodies. The project aims achieving this by meeting firstly the specific challenges faced by the Maltese and Italian Ministries of Finance, as well as by the UK Regional Cyber Crime Units, the three SUNFISH selected use cases.
The SUNFISH project aims to reduce the management cost of private clouds owned by Public Administrations, and – beyond pure costs savings – to accelerate the transition to 21st century interoperable and scalable public services, boosting enforcement of the European Digital Single Market.
EU-funded project meant to enable the secure federation of private clouds based on the Public Sector needs; the consortium comprises 11 organisations, coming from 6 different countries.Read more
