Another Japan in the World

The European Open Science Cloud was officially launched

When seeing the world, I tend to see it with a frame of Yuval Harari. The consequence of a quite popular futurist predicting the future, and saying the opinion makes the real situation happen affected by the opinion itself.

Yuval Harari's first book Sapiens was published in 2011 in Hebrew and in 2014 in English [1] Then Mark Zuckerberg and other popular people recommended this book. His 2nd book Homo Deus was published in September 2016 in English.

In the end of January 2018, his speech on the main stage of World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In my opinion, this was a key moment when his opinion was commonly known by many people on each country around the world. He said the key was who owns the data, especially bio metric data.

And from this sentence, this is a main content for this article.

In 23 November 2018, The European Open Science Cloud was officially launched according to the web site "The European Open Science Cloud hub" (= EOSC hub) web site [3].

This hub includes not only bio data (managed by Elixir = A community managing bio data now mainly by people in EBI), but also other science data [4]

It seems that EU is ready to manage the centralized data. But the question is where the data is managed at? I could not find the information. But maybe I assume it will be in Switzerland, considering the political situation.

For bio data, in my memory, the world first bio data was managed at EMBL Heiderberg Germany as a ENA (= European Nucleotide Archive) [5], and later then it was moved to EBI (= European Bioinformatics Institute) in Cambridge UK. My guess is the bio data will be moved to Geneva Switzerland, same place with CERN [6] with other science data.

OpenStack vs AWS: comparing the services

I am comparing between OpenStack [1][2] and AWS services. [3] is all the services of OpenStack. [4] is the comparing document.

I have an experience for AWS. But I do not have for OpenStack. The intent to compare those services is to remember OpenStack services easily mapping with AWS services.
