How GRNET Provides cloud services for science and government
Okeanos  is an IaaS cloud service developed and operated by GRNET . The service is powered by Synnefo , an open source software build on top of existing proven open source software (Google Ganeti, Ceph, etc.) which has been expanded in-house in order to provide a robust and complete IaaS cloud solution. The incentive for building the service has been the provision of public IaaS cloud service free of charge to the Greek Research and Academic community. ~okeanos is a national-funded project the success of which has seen expansion beyond national borders, attracting international collaborations and use cases.
