General Information

Short Description

CHAIN-REDS is a FP7 project co-funded by the European Commission (DG CONNECT) aiming at promoting and supporting technological and scientific collaboration across different e-Infrastructures established and operated in various continents, in order to define a path towards a global e-Infrastructure ecosystem that will allow Virtual Research Communities (VRCs), research groups and even single researchers to access and efficiently use worldwide distributed resources (i.e., computing, storage, data, services, tools, applications).

GNU Octave is a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a command-line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. As part of the GNU Project, it is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Use Case

Aim of this use case is allowing the CHAIN-REDS Science Gateway to execute Octave jobs on the EGI Federated Cloud. The CHAIN-REDS Science Gateway adopted the Catania Science Gateway Framework (CSGF) to interact with the FedCloud. Indeed, the CSGF offers an OCCI connector that allows SGs and portals based on it to exploit the FedCloud resources.
