Webinar: The EGI Marketplace

The webinar “The EGI Marketplace: A streamlined approach to accessing advanced computing services” will take place on 6 December at 12:00 pm and targets the Earth Observation community, with a focus on the NextGEOSS project partners.

The EGI Marketplace is an online platform for accessing and ordering advanced computing services to make research and innovation happen.

During the webinar, our colleagues Diego Scardaci and Björn Backeberg will introduce the marketplace and will provide an overview of the EGI service catalogue. The webinar will also feature a live demo on how to order services via the Marketplace and explain back-end processes.

NextGEOSS has a number of pilots using EGI Cloud Compute resources. NextGEOSS core services are hosted in the EGI cloud, for example the CKAN cluster and the user management portal. Hervé Caumont from Terradue will give a presentation about Terradue’s experience using the EGI cloud as part of the NextGEOSS project using one of the pilots as an example use case.
