For SURF (the Dutch NREN), Ponder Source are proud to build a connection between ResearchDrive (based on ownCloud) and SRAM (their AAI solution).

As part of this process, we also implement Federated Groups in OC-10, and improve OC-10's Open Cloud Mesh implementation to allow not only OCM-sharing to a user, but also to a (local) group.

In this presentation we will briefly present the design issues we encountered, demo the results, and discuss the exciting similarities and synergies with the related Federated Groups ("Virtual Organizations") project of Nextcloud / Helmholtz, and we would like to discuss the implications for the Open Cloud Mesh protocol.
