Cloud Services & Portfolio


Helmholtz Cloud is a federated cloud platform and offers services to all Helmholtz centres and the entire scientific community and partners. The cloud service portfolio primarily consists of existing heterogeneous solutions of the different centres (providers) and, where possible and reasonable, establishes a “meta-level” over these.

The provision of Helmholtz Cloud Services requires technical and organisational frameworks to open up a broad portfolio of services to all users. The connection to international developments (e.g. EOSC at European level) is regarded as essential and the "FAIR" principles in particular are taken into account.

The initial Service Selection Process has been worked out to efficiently identify the services which fulfill the selection criteria best and which should consequently be integrated into Helmholtz cloud first.

At the end of this process, 38 Helmholtz Cloud Services offered by nine Helmholtz Centers were selected. Considering that some services are provided by several centers, the initial service portfolio includes 21 different services.

The portfolio is continuously being updated. The current status can be found here.
