The recently launched OCRE Cloud Catalogue makes it easy for the European research community to identify the commercial cloud services that are most fit for their needs and to procure them. Building on the outcomes of the OCRE IaaS+ Tender, the OCRE Cloud Catalogue displays the cloud offering for each of the 40 European Countries included in the OCRE Cloud Framework.
With a service portfolio of 27 different commercial cloud-based platforms, the new catalogue represents a significant upgrade to the previous GÉANT Cloud Framework.
Institutes can now access their national offering by clicking on the map or by selecting their country from the list. Each page provides information on the NRENs and allows to message Cloud Managers to request support in procuring the available services. Finally, single entries about platforms and suppliers include links to dedicated landing pages with further information and provide email addresses which can be used to request a quote.

The Consortium delivering the project includes GÉANT (coordinator), CERN, RHEA and Trust-IT.
