DescriptionCloud services are answering ever-growing needs of research communities. Especially the field of bioinformatics is using more and mode cloud resources. The bioinformatics field brings new challenges to research infrastructures. Sensitive data is widely used, and it sets security requirements that traditional infrastructures can't provide.

The CSC ePouta service has been designed with sensitive data in mind. It allows researchers to offload the burden of infrastructure management when handling sensitive data.

We'll describe the design of ePouta and how it fits together with different security standards. The limitations and future design options will be presented, as will the lessons learned of running a platform intended for sensitive data.
