    CS3APIS and REVA: Cloud Interoperability and User Freedom

    This talk will present the motivation towards creating a inter-operability platform based on open and modern APIs to improve cross-institutional collaboration and recover the user freedom in cloud-based services. Researchers face isolated service islands which are not able to interconnect and extend beyond the institutional boundaries; hence the researchers are not able to use services that may be avail- able at another site, even if they do collaborate scientifically with researchers at these sites. Furthermore, sites and e-Infrastructure providers are not able to easily integrate new application services, developed at other sites which use different technology solutions and thus they risk of providing inadequate service or drastically increasing the service costs. Finally, the freedom of the users to choose a specific application to work with was lost with the migration to cloud-based services. This talk presents the motivation behind the creation of the CS3APIS alongside the reference implementation (REVA) and introduces the concept of Bring Your Own Application.
