EGI-ACE federates together a distributed set of 16 hosting centres that bring compute and storage capacity for data processing, hosting research data and tools and scale up data analytics environments, scientific gateways and other added value services. Over the 30 months of the project, the hosting sites will provide more than 82 M CPU hours and 250 K GPU hours, as well as 45 PB/month through the Cloud Compute (IaaS) and High Throughput Compute services of the EGI portfolio. They will support EGI-ACE platforms and data spaces and those users coming from the use cases calls of the project and the EOSC portal. Alongside with the baseline computing and storage infrastructure, a set of enabling components support the Cloud Compute service: AppDB, for resource discovery and software catalogue; Dynamic DNS, for user-managed DNS provision of domain names for VMs and services running on the e-Infrastructure; and Infrastructure Manager (IM) , for the basic orchestration of IaaS resources. This presentation will provide an overview of the hosting centres and the enabling services. It will also showcase the main use cases supported in the infrastructure and the current usage of the available resources from the project.
