Cloud synchronization and sharing is an area in evolution with innovative services being built on top of different platforms. CERNBOX is a service ran at CERN to provide at the same time synchronisation services (based on the OwnCloud software) and high-performance data access and sharing (based on EOS, the CERN disk storage system for large-scale physics data analysis).
The Smashbox framework (https://github.com/cernbox/smashbox) is successfully used on Linux clients to test OwnCloud/CERNBOX installations. The plans to extend it require to port it to non-Linux platforms:
* Smashbox port to Windows platforms
* Smashbox port to Android
* Smashbox port to iOS
* Smashbox orchestration (concurrent execution across platforms)
