Many grid projects are experimenting with cloud computing, to better understand its practical use, both for the grid provider as for its users. In this session grid projects present their current findings, discuss the benefits and issues with cloud computing from both provider as well as user perspective.

The workshop is coordinated by BalticCloud - a BalticGrid cloud computing testbed.
