The vision of ASCLEPIOS is to maximize and fortify the trust of users on cloud-based healthcare services by developing mechanisms for protecting both corporate and personal sensitive data. Within the project CPC leads the investigation and development of three cloud-based real-life healthcare demonstrators, utilising ASCLEPIOS services, to improve stroke acute care, inpatient and outpatient sleep medicine treatment, and antibiotics prescription patterns.
The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modelling and simulation, leveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics, thus contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy. To pursue this mission, computationally demanding production engineering and simulation, as well as data analytics tools, are to be provided as cloud services to ease accessibility and make their use more affordable.
The overall objective of the COLA project is that by building on and extending current research results, it defines and provides a reference implementation of a generic and pluggable framework, called MiCADO, that supports the optimal and secure deployment and run-time orchestration of cloud applications. COLA demonstrates the applicability and impact of the solution via large scale near operational level SME and public sector pilots and demonstrators, and also defines a clear pathway how the innovation can be delivered to the market.

Cloud Computing Distributed Infrastructure
The University of Westminster Cloud Cluster is the latest and most flexible computing resource offered by the School of Electronics and Computing. This extremely powerful platform addresses both teaching and research computing demands from within the university. It currently supports European projects and external research collaborations. The EC2 and S3 compatible "Amazon like" interface makes it very easy to use and accessible for everyone.
High-Performance Cloud Application Support Service
The Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC) offers a generic support service to users and collaborators based on P-GRADE. The objectives of the service are:
- To enable users with compute- and data-intensive applications to benefit from high performance cloud computing through the P-GRADE toolset
- To analyse, enable and prototype intensive user applications on high performance cloud- and grid-based infrastructure
- To provide technical support to high performance cloud service providers for P-GRADE installation and advanced features, and underlying cloud- and grid-based infrastructure
- To provide training, research and development
