SCI-BUS - SCIentific gateway Based User Support
Collaborative and supporting project
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on 29 March 2012
SCI-BUS aims to create a generic-purpose gateway technology as a toolset to provide seamless access to major computing, data and networking infrastructures and services in Europe including clusters, supercomputers, grids, desktop grids, academic and commercial clouds.
The collaboration aims to integrate Virtual Research Communities and coordinate communication efforts to maximise impact. In this broad context, the specific goals of the collaborations are:
1. VRC Integration: The collaboration will explore new possibilities for EGI user communities to create custom science gateways via the SCI-BUS Competence Center. SCI-BUS will develop and integrate an availability monitoring service for the SCI-BUS Generic Gateway, based on the EGI monitoring infrastructure.
2. Dissemination: The MoU gives SCI-BUS an outlet for its training materials, application details and other information via EGI’s User Support services (e.g. Training Marketplace, Applications Database).
