SNET is winner of the "Trusted Cloud" technology competition

4.5 million € for TRESOR!

On March 1st 2011, the winners of the technology competition Trusted Cloud initiated by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) were announced at CeBIT, the digital industry's biggest, most international event. As part of a consortium, two groups of TU Berlin were successful with the project TRESOR (TRusted Ecosystem for Standardized and Open cloud-based Resources), which was selected as one of 12 projects among 116 submitted proposals to be funded by the BMWi. The funding for the whole project is 4.5 million € from which TU Berlin receives 1.3 million €.

The main objective of TRESOR is the development of a cloud ecosystem that consists of an open platform for cloud services and a cloud broker. The first component provides a marketplace for cloud services based on well-established standards maximizing interoperability between different cloud providers. In that way, cloud services can be easily combined and integrated into several applications leading to cost savings and decreasing dependencies, so-called lock-in effects, to certain cloud providers. The cloud broker, on the other hand, mediates, combines and allows the access to those cloud services by taking enterprise guidelines, regulations by law and security policies into consideration. Furthermore, the broker applies new concepts of location-aware service usage and data storage.

In the project, TU Berlin is represented by Deutsche Telekom Laboratories with the group Service-centric Networking led by Prof. Dr. Axel Küpper and the chair IuK Management led by Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Zarnekow. Other partners are T-Systems International GmbH, Ubiry GmbH, Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin, Paulinenhaus Krankenanstalt e.V. Berlin and medisite Systemhaus GmbH.

About Trusted Cloud:

Through the Trusted Cloud program, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) is funding the development and trial of innovative, secure and legal cloud computing services with a total amount of 50 million €. Adding the same amount of money provided by the project participants, Trusted Cloud invests 100 million € into cloud computing in Germany. Trusted Cloud is part of the program Cloud Computing that the BMWi has started with economic and scientific partners in October 2010.
