How Cloud Computing Can Boost Europe’s Competitiveness

The European Commission has just distributed a press release to announce the promotion of cloud computing in Europe as an important objective of the Digital Agenda for Europe. Cloud Computing is one of the key enabling information technologies that can help European businesses –especially SMEs – to drastically reduce IT costs, help governments supply services at a lower cost to citizens and make computing much more energy efficient. OpenNebula is referenced in the press release as key technology to offer widespread cloud services. The press release also announces the visit of European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes to CeBIT2011 information technology (IT) exhibition in Hannover, Germany on 2 and 3 March, where the main theme is cloud computing.
