Sustainability of Technology Providers
- Sergio Andreozzi (EGI.EU)
The technology area within the EGI ecosystem is built upon open-source or commercial software coming from community and generic technology providers that is put together by platform integrators to meet the needs of particular research communities. For instance, the EMI project integrates a platform for high-throughput computing from software that is developed within the project primarily for the EGI community (i.e. community technology providers such as the product teams within EMI) with software developed outside the EGI community (i.e. generic technology providers such as Apache) to meet particular use cases coming from their target research community (e.g. WLCG). The aim of this session is to share vision and strategies from the perspectives of technology providers to guarantee sustainable software and support for the EGI community.
