Our services are provided by EGI’s federated cloud providers and data centres. They can be requested by everyone involved in academic research.
EGI compute infrastructure provides fast and flexible compute capacity to fit any research need, from Cloud compute to Cloud Container compute, and High-Throughput compute. Our Workload Manager ensure the computing tasks are managed and distributed efficiently, while maximising the use of resources.
Run virtual machines on demand with complete control over computing resources
Run Docker containers in a lightweight virtualised environment
Execute thousands of computational tasks to analyse large datasets
Publish and access software efficiently across multiple sites
Our compute orchestration services allow you to easily manage your computing workload across the EGI distributed infrastructure.
Storage and Data
Store, share and transfer data in reliable environments or use DataHub for efficient access and exploitation of distributed data.
Security & Identity
EGI Check-in enables single sign-in and is a proxy service that operates as a central hub to connect federated Identity Providers with EGI service providers.
Gain access to online applications, application-hosting frameworks and browser-based tool for compute-intensive data analysis.
EGI creates opportunities for professional development and acquiring know-how. We deliver training and consultancy to facilitate the uptake of EGI services by scientific communities, and to increase quality of work of our service operators.
Users are granted access based on policies defined by the EGI resource providers or by the EGI Foundation; such policies usually apply to resources being offered with “sponsored use” to meet some national or EU level objective; for instance, a country may offer resources with “sponsored use” to support national researchers involved in international collaborations.
Users can freely access scientific data and digital services provided by EGI resource providers.
Users can negotiate a fee to access services either directly with EGI resource providers or indirectly with the EGI Foundation.
Services allowing access to rival resources (e.g. computing capacity or storage space) are usually provided under a policy-based or market-driven access policy. Services allowing access to non-rival resources (e.g. software packages or scientific data) are usually provided under a wide access policy. All access policies may not be available for each and every resource, service or scientific data set.
