Main Roadmap and Innovation Technology For Users For Resource Providers Media



Introduction

This wiki page provides information about the user communities and use cases who are exploiting the EGI Federated Cloud infrastructure and its services. These use cases and communities collaborated (or collaborate in the past) with the EGI Federated Cloud to enable scientific applications, simulations or tools in virtualised environments. The evolution of the Federated Cloud infrastructure is driven by the requirements of these use cases and the needs of the broader scientific community and industry in the European Research Area.

The EGI Federated Cloud User Support (FCUS) team during the porting and integration work of the use cases into the Federated Cloud, follows a well defined process described bellow. The various phases are described as well, and will be used in the next coming tables to list the ongoing, production and closed use cases.

Status Description
Pre-assessment FCUS members identified a potential use case that can profit from the EGI Federated Cloud services
Assessed The use case requirements are assessed with relevant information added to a dedicated wiki page, to manage the full porting & integration process
Preparatory The user & FCUS team setup the environment to execute tests on the FedCloud (configuration of client environment, identify resource providers, upload vm images, ...)
Test & Integration Users are accessing the FedCloud through the fedcloud.egi.eu VO to execute tests while integrate their applications to the infrastructure
Pre-production Test & integration phases were successfully completed. Create a production Virtual Organization (VO) or join an already existing VO
Production Use case is being used in production. The use case completed all tests and is regularly making use of the Federated Cloud using a production level VO
Closed Test & integration successfully completed. Use case does not foresee moving into production.
Cancelled Test & integration did not successfully completed. User cancelled the use case.

ENVRI Data access, catalog and dissemination (EISCAT 3D) Natural sciences

Phisical sciences Space science

In this proof-of-concept the OSGC software was deployed on the EGI Federated Cloud. OSGC is an Open Source implementation of an OpenSearch GeoSpatial Catalogue compliant to OGC 10-32r3 specification, developed by EGI.eu (http://www.egi.eu/) under the ENVRI (http://envri.eu/) project. Wiki page
ESA SSEP Data processing Natural sciences In the context of the Helix Nebula initiative, the European Space Agency organized a Proof of Concept using EGI Federated Cloud resources. The pilot proved the possibility to support the SuperSites Exploitation Platform flagship using academic resources, such as teh one provided by the EGI federated cloud. An instance of the SSEP processing cluster has been instantiated into the EGI Federated cloud, on several EGI sites, connected with the SSEP processing platform and used to run test earthquakes monitoring related processing (such as SBAS and Gamma IPTA processing).

Earth sciences Hydrology

Aim of this proof-of-concept was the evaluation of the EGI Federated Cloud as alternative to the community computing resources to execute JAMS computation. The community already owns enough computing resources for their current needs but its workload should increase in a near future. The community was able to execute standard JAMS simulation in the EGI Federated Cloud without major issue. Wiki page
