The Future Cloud Cluster (FCC), a pan-European committee of experts in Cloud Computing, has released its new position paper entitled “Federated Cloud Reference Architecture”. With this paper, the FCC inputs to the European Commission its vision and rationale for realizing federated clouds comprised of multiple and heterogeneous cloud and edge computing layers, while also highlighting necessary building blocks and features. Most importantly, the FCC identifies key research challenges in cloud computing, relevant to the new Horizon Europe framework.
