The EuroGeographics INSPIRE Knowledge Exchange Network (INSPIRE KEN) held a webinar about cloud architecture today. The first session took place from 10 : 00 to 11: 30, well attended by participants from various countries (Belgium, France, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland etc).
During this first session, chaired by Dominique Laurent (IGN France), chair of the INSPIRE KEN, Cedric Moullet presented the experience of swisstopo, using IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud model for managing the Federal Spatial Data Infrastructure, since 2009.
The webinar gave the opportunity to raise questions about technical choices, size of SDI, organizational aspects, … what was well appreciated by the participants.
If you missed the first session, you will have another opportunity to attend the Second session about the cloud architecture, which will be scheduled by end of November (on 26 November 2012) to present the Ordnance Survey's experience.
We will inform you soon about the details and way of registration for this event.
