Summary What's new in the European research and development area? Cloud computing is a provision model where whatever computing resource that can be think of (machines, network, software solutions, applications) is provided as a service. This new paradigm has changed the center of gravity of computing in both the academic and industry environments but despite the considerable efforts and investments, there are critical problems that are not solved yet. The research and development community involved .
