A catalyst for EuropeaN ClOUd Services in the era of data spaces, high-performance and edge computing


NOUS develops the architecture of a European Cloud Service that allows computational and data storage resources to be used from edge devices as well as supercomputers, through the HPC network, and Quantum Computers. NOUS will be an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)/Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud provider, harnessing edge computing and decentralisation paradigms to incorporate a wide array of devices and machines in its computational flow to provide leaps in Europe’s capability to process vast amounts of data.

Arctur's role

ARCTUR leads the task of leveraging the HPC Network and its resources for the NOUS. This involves defining system-level policies and infrastructure requirements to enable seamless communication and data transfer between the NOUS and HPC systems. Additionally, the Arctur team is actively involved in all project activities, providing support to partners for the development of the architecture.
