Question from DESY Zeuthen/Andreas Haupt
Sent: Tuesday, August 02, 2011 8:54 AM
Subject: [Fwd: [EGI BROADCAST] UMD 1.1.0 released]
Dear all,
can somebody enlighten me which middleware we are supposed to install on our grid sites when the support for gLite-3.2 ends? EMI or 
UMD? What ist the difference between them?
Answer given by Andre Gemuend via Emaillist:
Should be UMD. IIRC, the UMD are the EMI components certified for EGI and in future possibly the Globus releases from the IGE 
Answer given by Dimitri KIT:
Gridka will not install updates or will not switch to UMD until it is needed because of critical bugs or wish of the experiments 
There is the official statement that the gLite support is ongoing until April 2012.

General information about UMD:
