This project proposes the creation of MACKCLOUD a Computer Multidisciplinary Center Cloud, at Mackenzie Presbyterian University. The MACKCLOUD is an affordable computing infrastructure via the Internet to all researchers of the university, providing computing resources for storing and processing data on demand.The central features of MACKCLOUD are:* Computational Infrastructure (memory and processing) on demand, ie, the researcher can allocate resources according to the needs of your research;* Broad access via the Internet, including mobile platforms;* Shared use of resources, allowing multiple users to connect and benefit from computing resources simultaneously;* Elasticity, that is, increase and / or reduction of memory and / or processing capacity according to demand and cloud;* Ability to measure and optimize the use of computing resources.
