Stratus Cloud at the University of Florida

May 13, 2008

From workspace-announce:

I am happy to announce the availability of a science cloud (codenamed “Stratus” 😉 at the University of Florida. This cloud introduces a new feature: the use of virtual networks with virtual machines for cloud computing.

The cloud is available for members of the scientific community: to obtain access you will need to provide a justification (a few sentences explaining your science project) to cloud administrators at UFL. To find out more go to:

The cloud is currently deployed on a modest allocation of resources as a beta project. We welcome comments, feedback, and bug reports.
