About The UberCloud
The UberCloud started in 2012 with inviting engineers, scientists and their service providers to participate in real-life hands-on experiments to move and run end-user applications in the cloud. 155 of these experiments have been performed so far and the challenges carefully investigated and published in two UberCloud Compendiums. Based on this experience, the UberCloud online marketplace platform has been developed. Today, end-users and service providers have one common access point for technical computing in the cloud: the UberCloud information, community, experiment, and online marketplace to discover, try, and buy computing on demand.
