Objective: TClouds aims to develop techniques and tools for the design and deployment of trustworthy cloud computing infrastructures. Special emphasis is put on privacy protection in cross-border infrastructures and on ensuring resilience against failures and attacks. TClouds will build a prototype Internet-scale cloud infrastructure which offers virtualised computing, network, and storage resources to provide scalability and cost-efficiency.
