The SCALUS FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network

(2009–2013). Coordinator: André Brinkmann. Partners: Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain), Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain), University of Paderborn (Germany), Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Germany), Durham University (United Kingdom), FORTH (Greece), École des Mines de Nantes (France), XLAB (Slovenia), CERN (Switzerland), NEC (Germany), Microsoft Research (United Kingdom), Fujitsu (Germany), Sun Microsystems (Germany). Topic: scalable distributed storage. Abstract: The consortium of this Marie Curie Initial Training Network (MCITN) "SCALing by means of Ubiquitous Storage (SCALUS)" aims at elevating education, research, and development inside this exciting area with a focus on cluster, grid, and cloud storage. The vision of this MCITN is to deliver the foundation for ubiquitous storage systems, which can be scaled in arbitrary directions (capacity, performance, distance, security). We mainly collaborate with UPM (2 co-advised PhD theses).
