EU-JP Roadmap

A roadmap to cloud computing collaboration between Japan and the EU “CLOUDS” are no regional phenomenom constrained to a specific region. As a successor of traditional internet provisioning, it spans the whole world. Accordingly, any service offered over the cloud must principally be equally available in any region – no matter whether storage, computing or specific software: a common global cloud environment.
