Enabling Clouds in Community Networks

Amin Khan, Felix Freitag, Leandro Navarro, Roger Baig

Abstract

Community networks represent bottom-up efforts for cooperative development of ICT infrastructure, based on the principle of reciprocal sharing of bandwidth. With community clouds, members of the community network can build cloud-based services that are hosted on community-owned computing and communication resources, and that provide services of local interest to the community. Enabling community clouds in community networks requires taking into account the specific socio-economic context of the community networks, and devising incentive-based mechanisms to encourage participation from members of the community networks. Cloudy, a Debian based distribution, makes it accessible for anyone in the community network to bring in their resources in the cloud, and take advantage of the community cloud services.
