“Ten simple rules” for establishing a national scale OpenStack cloud e-infrastructure for science

The SNIC Science Cloud (SSC) team has published a paper in the 2017 conference on IEEE eScience.  SNIC Science cloud has been an infrastructure project run by the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) with the purpose to assess if and how SNIC should offer cloud infrastructure to the scientific community. The project is now coming to an end, and the SSC OpenStack resources will become a part of the SNIC production infrastructure landscape. In the paper, we summarize the experiences gained in the project and provide recommendations in the form of “ten simple rules”  for how to successfully establish a science cloud community cloud infrastructure on a national scale.
