Use Case

Running CORSIKA and OFFLINE in the EGI Federated Cloud.

Auger VO has produced a large number of files in EGI GRID infrastructure last five years. Interaction with GRID Storage Elements is necessary to access them, so the requirement of UMD on VM (see below). A setup centralized installations of CORSIKA and OFFLINE software on CVMFS is available at GRIDPP. The target is using it on a VM.


  • 1 VM
  • 2 cores and 8GB of RAM
  • about 4 GB of storage
  • Scientific Linux 6x
  • additional packages: UMD packages, CVMFS
