Current Projects is the European observatory of research and innovation in the field of cybersecurity and privacy
Constructing a scalable data storage system that can quickly retrieve usable, quality data to support intelligence-led security decision-making.
Applying Big Data Analytics in the analysis of the cloud computing ecosystem to develop Strategic Blue core products and services, and to automate the functionality that underpins them.
Integrating trusted computing technology into public cloud computing infrastructure to provide public cloud services with verifiable security, privacy and trust to develop enhanced product lines.

Past Projects

The aim of CloudWATCH is to build a common standards profile for cloud services by exploiting the existing European cloud federation and integration efforts and provide an interoperability testbed for use by the EU cloud hosting & provider industry.
CloudWATCH2 brings together highly specialised experts in standardisation, security, legal aspects and pricing to help ensure European Research and Innovation (R&I) takes to market the best possible products and services. Ultimately, this has significant benefits not only for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) but also public services. 
Enabling neuroscientists to streamline the laboratory experience from conception of experiment to publication of the research results.
The UK National Grid Service (NGS) is a national consortium of computational and data resources that make use of defined open standard grid interfaces to provide services to academia.
SIENA will contribute to defining a future eInfrastructures roadmap focusing on interoperability and standards.
The deployment of Shibboleth infrastructure has reached a point in its evolution where it is possible to develop a production service for the UK National Grid Service.
This project will integrate existing components to provide a reliable, high performance resource brokering system.
The Oxford e-Research Centre has a 96 core Dell cluster installed with MS Cluster Compute Server version 1. The cluster is arranged with both thick (quad dual core) nodes and thin (dual dual core) nodes.
This pilot will deliver a public-private hybrid cloud architecture and two demonstrators providing higher level services for the support of research.
A project focussing on the digital challenges of providing personalised health information to help spot problems before they happen
A project aimed at making it easy for you and your research group to work with, annotate, publish, and permanently store your research data.
Bridging the Interoperability Divide (BID) will use the principles underpinning the JISC e-framework to build interoperability between 3 repository systems: SRB, Fedora and ASK.
The purpose of CRISP is to create synergies and develop common solutions for an initial group of eleven European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure preparatory phase projects in the field of Physics, Astronomy, and Analytical Facilities.
Many situations require traceable accuracy of data when it passes from the provider to different analysis communities. MyTrustedCloud is working with energy suppliers to construct a prototype of trust-capable cloud infrastructure
