Federating virtualised computing resources in EGI

This blueprint document will be assembled and written by the Task Force members providing EGI Resource Centres with all information necessary to provision and configure computing and storage resources so that they can be easily and securely federated as part of the EGI production infrastructure.

The blueprint itself is planned to be developed at this sub-space: Fedcloud-tf:Blueprint EGI Federated Clouds
