DIstributed Computing Environments (DICE) Team
We are a group of computer scientists and IT experts from the Department of Computer Science AGH and ACC Cyfronet AGH. We are a curiosity- and research-driven team, specializing in large-scale distributed computing, HPC, Web and Cloud technologies. We develop new methods, tools and environments and we apply these solutions in e-Science, healthcare and industrial domains.

The Atmosphere platform is responsible for maintaining an interface between the end-user tools developed in the VPH-Share project and the underlying hardware resources required to perform complex computations in a distributed Cloud environment. The Atmosphere approach is not to develop low-level cloud middleware or services, but rather to build on top of existing solutions – thus, Atmosphere integrates resources acquired from commercial IaaS providers (e.g. Amazon EC2) with privately-deployed open-source cloud platforms (e.g. OpenStack). The result is a hybrid Cloud infrastructure on which VPH collaboration partners can expose and access domain-oriented computational and data storage services representing various areas of medical science.
