The Mass Open Cloud and Open Cloud Initiative

The Mass Open Cloud Team attending the OpenStack Project Teams Gathering, May 2017
Video: Overview of Mass Open Cloud and Connected Initiatives (from BU's Research on Tap, September 30, 2020)

The Mass Open Cloud (MOC) is a production public cloud being developed based on the model of an Open Cloud Exchange (OCX), a model where many stakeholders, rather than just a single provider, participate in implementing and operating the cloud. Hosted at Boston University and housed at the Hariri Institute for Computing, the project is a unique collaborative effort between higher education, government, non-profit entities, and industry.
