Coordinated offering of a federated resource pool implements the EGI Council policy that was adopted in November 2012 to explore how Excellent European Science can be supported through a European level review and resource allocation process of pooled NGI resources.
The EGI Council has adopted a policy to explore how Excellent European Science can be supported through a European level review and resource allocation process of pooled NGI resources. This session will expand on the initial discussion moving forward to an implementation roadmap.
During the workshop we will discuss the proposed resource brokering model, the related procedures and support tools and the roles of EGI.eu, the NGIs and the Resource Providers.
This session is aimed at Resource Centre representatives willing to participate to the EGI experimental activities around coordinated resource provisioning, NGI operators and user communities interested in exploring this resource provisioning approach.
The outcome of the Resource Allocation task force and its input to the Mini Project on "Tool for automation of resource application and allocation from a federated EGI pool" will be presented.
