The Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC) is a new, non-profit public cloud being created in Massachusetts. It will be the product of collaboration between the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, five large research universities (MIT, Harvard, BU, NE, and UMass), and an array of private sector partners. It will be located at the 15MW Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) in Holyoke.
The MOC will stand apart from existing single-provider clouds by enabling multiple entities to provide (rather than just consume) computing resources and services on a level playing field. Big and small companies, and even researchers, can expose their hardware or software services through the MOC, make them available to a large community of users, and derive revenue from doing so.
We will discuss the vision and status of the project, the central role OpenStack plays in its implementation, and some of the required changes needed in OpenStack to enable a multi-provider open cloud.
