SummaryCloud-based services are increasingly used for scientific application scenarios as they offer benefits like elasticity, scalability and measured service usage. GWDG already offer a selection of cloud services to support the institutes of the Max Planck Society, among which are GWDG Cloud Share providing data sharing and synchronization, and GWDG Compute Cloud offering virtual server capabilities. In addition, GWDG participates in various research and development projects to advance and complement existing services.
