2023 MOC Alliance Workshop

The is a RHR partner event. Please visit the 2023 MOC Alliance event page for the latest information.

The MOC Alliance provides a structure for a set of interrelated projects that have grown up around the Mass Open Cloud (MOC) and Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC).  These projects include production cloud services (NERCNESEOSN) for domain researchers that are operated and facilitated by university research IT, a national testbed for cloud research (OCT), projects to enable scientific and medical researchers (BiogridsChRiS), projects to engage the open source (OI labsOperate First) and system research (Red Hat Collaboratoryi-Scale) communities.

The workshop will bring together our unique community of Research IT, researchers, users, and industry to celebrate what has been accomplished and help define the MOC Alliance strategy moving forward. In addition, it will showcase how the Alliance is so much more than the sum of its parts. Sessions will cover research that was motivated by experience with a real cloud, the impact research has already had on upstream open source projects, and how some of these projects are starting to impact services that are part of the Alliance.
