From January 30, 2016 until February 1, 2017, CERN, AARnet, ETH and SURFsara organised the Workshop on Cloud Services for Synchronisation and Sharing. This was the 3rd in a series of workshops about sync-and-share solutions that started at CERN 2 years ago. Resource providers, vendors and users of sync-and-share solutions met to exchange knowledge and experiences and to present roadmaps and current and future developments. Apart from this there were presentations about storage solutions and scientific workflows using sync-and-share solutions and new services built on top of sync-and-share services.

There was a keynote presentation from Peter Boros of Dropbox with the title Metadata at Dropbox: a look at dropbox’s transactional databases.

Target audience

The target audience includes users in research, service providers and developers of technological solutions. As in the past, the conference maximised the opportunity to liaise with key actors of the community.
