Webinar: EGI Applications On Demand Service

Gergely Sipos (EGI.eu) , Giuseppe La Rocca (EGI.eu)

This 1-hour webinar will provide an overview of the EGI Applications on Demand (AoD) service. The service was specifically designed for individual researchers, small research teams and early phase research infrastructures who do not have access to dedicated computational and storage resources, online applications and science gateways to perform scientific data analysis.

The service is available at http://access.egi.eu and through a lightweight registration and user identity vetting process allows user-friendly access to a growing number of scientific applications (currently 17) and application hosting frameworks (science gateways, VREs) that are configured to use the dedicated pool of cloud computing and HTC clusters from EGI.

The service operates as an open and extensible ‘hub’ for EGI-related providers and e-user support teams who can use the service to share and make available applications, services and/or compute-storage capacity at the European level. 

The target audience of the webinar is:

  • NGIs and National User Support Teams: They can use the service to serve national users, OR they can use this European service to promote and make available their national applications and gateways/VREs to foreign users. 
  • Representatives of research infrastructures or scientific communities/projects: They can use the service to serve their long-tail users with generic or domain specific applications, before/without committing to long-term resource allocation through EGI.   
  • Researchers and small research teams (the long tail of science): They can learn about the applications and tools that are available for them in this service.
