The task of enabling an application to run in a grid environment is not straightforward. It requires a high level of expertise (grid users, grid providers, grid developers/programmers) and it can involve a considerable amount of work. Several aspects should be taken into consideration for a successful porting of an application, namely:

  • application requirements
  • technical deployment
  • benchmarking
  • production stage
  • dissemination among peers
  • ...

An How To Guide with best practices on how to port applications to the EGI e-infrastructure is a must.


Clear instructions to application developers on how to enable their applications to run on EGI resources. We envisage this information could be collected in a How To guide.


To be defined in the first VT meeting.
