Open Commons Consortium

The Open Commons Consortium (OCC) manages and operates cloud computing and data commons infrastructure to support big data scientific, medical, healthcare and environmental research. OCC members span the globe and include universities, companies, government agencies and national laboratories. The OCC manages the Open Science Data Cloud and Bionimbus Protected Data Cloud – data science ecosystems in which researchers can house and share their own scientific data, access complimentary public datasets, build and share customized virtual machines with tools necessary to interpret their data, and perform the analysis needed to answer their research questions.
