The EGI Federated Cloud
The EGI Federated Cloud is a IaaS-type cloud, made of academic private clouds and virtualised resources and built around open standards. Its development is driven by requirements of the scientific community.
The result is a new type of research e-infrastructure, based on the mature federated operations services that make EGI a reliable resource for science.
When using EGI Federated Cloud resources, researchers and research communities can count on:
- Total control over deployed applications
- Elastic resource consumption based on real need
- Immediately processed workloads – no more waiting time
- An extended e-Infrastructure across resource providers in Europe
- Service performance scaled with elastic resource consumption
The EGI Federation is an international e-Infrastructure set up to provide advanced computing and data analytics services for research and innovation. The EGI e-infrastructure is publicly-funded and comprises hundreds of data centres and cloud providers spread across Europe and worldwide.
- The EGI Federation offers a wide range of services for compute, storage, data and support. More about EGI Services.
- The EGI Federation provides access to +1,000,000 computing cores and +740 PB of disk and tape storage. More about the federation.
Ukraine has joined the EGI Council in 2018 as an Associated Participant after a fruitful collaboration going back for many years.
