The Catania Science Gateway Framework (CSGF) has been developed by INFN, Division of Catania (Italy), to provide application developers with a tool to create Science Gateways (SGs) in short time and in a very easy way. CSGF is made of a set of libraries to manage Authentication & Authorization mechanisms and to interact with several different kinds of DCIs (grid, cloud, HPC, local, etc.). The CSGF is fully compliant to the EGI.eu VO portal policy.

The CSGF allows users to execute applications on the EGI Federated Cloud through web portals/SGs. The Science Gateways based on CSGF provide users with intuitive web interface to execute applications on the Cloud as jobs and to manage these jobs during their running (check the status and download the output). The SGs takes care of starting the VMs on the EGI Federated Cloud, transfer the needed files (e.g. executable, input files, etc.), stop the VMs and download the output in behalf of the user.

A list of Science Gateways based on the CSGF is available here.

The EGI Federated Cloud users can exploit the CSGF features to:

  • Add their applications in one of the existing Science Gateways
  • Deploy a new Science Gateway
