CloudCycle allows cloud providers to offer their services with guaranteed security and compliance, i.e., compliance with applicable laws, regulations and data-protection requirements, in a cost-efficient and scalable manner to customers in the small and medium-sized business sector and the public sector.
CloudCycle, in contrast to existing solutions, covers the entire life cycle of the services: it allows solution and service providers to specify the security guarantees of their services as well as the run-time environment requirements, to offer and run services in a fully automated manner, and to migrate them between operators.
CloudCycle creates not only new markets for solution developers but also a competitive edge for cloud providers, cloud operators and other suppliers of value-add services in the area of security. CloudCycle validates the offers for broader impact by means of standard solutions for schools, school administrations and citizen portals on the basis of an open-source platform and by means of the interoperability of services and data portability between cloud providers in the public and the private sector.
CloudCycle offers small and medium-sized businesses and the public sector the means to benefit from scalable standard solutions and services on open cloud platforms in an economical way.
Adequate security and compliance are automatically guaranteed even for customers with limited security expertise.
