Service Level Agreement extended: EGI and EXTraS

The EGI Foundation is proud to announce an extension of the agreement (SLA) between a group of service providers and the EXTraS project (Exploring the X-ray Transient and variable Sky), now valid until June 2019.

EXTraS is on a mission to harvest the hitherto unexplored temporal domain information buried in the serendipitous data collected by the European Photon Imaging Camera instrument on-board the ESA’s X-ray space observatory XMM-Newton, in 13 years of observations.

Thanks to the agreement with EGI, EXTraS is accessing Cloud Compute services needed for the project’s activities.

The EGI service providers involved are:

CYFRONET-Cloud (Poland)

INFN-CATANIA-STACK (Italy)
