Together we are stronger
The EGI Core is a federation and management platform that pool together the various resources. The EGI Federated Cloud Platform (FedCloud) is a federated cloud infrastructure. The EGI High-Throughput Computing Platform (EGI HTC) offers large scale batch processing.

EGI Federated Cloud
The EGI Federated Cloud is an IaaS-type cloud consisting of academic, private clouds and virtualised resources built around open standards. The requirements of the scientific community drive its development.
The result is a new type of research e-infrastructure, based on the mature federated operations services that make EGI a reliable resource for science.
When using EGI Federated Cloud resources, researchers and research communities can count on:
- Total control over deployed applications
- Elastic resource consumption based on real need
- Immediately processed workloads – no more waiting time
- An extended e-Infrastructure across resource providers in Europe
- Service performance scaled with elastic resource consumption
Federated High-Throughput Computing (HTC)
The EGI Federated High-Throughput Computing (HTC) provides access to large, shared computing systems for running computational jobs at scale. These allow researchers to analyse large datasets in an ‘embarrassingly parallel’ fashion, i.e., by splitting the data into small pieces, and executing thousands, or even more independent computing tasks simultaneously, each processing one piece of data.
