EGI-ACE’s main objective is to implement the Compute Platform of the European Open Science Cloud and contribute to the EOSC Data Commons by delivering integrated computing, platforms, data spaces and tools as an integrated solution that is aligned with major European cloud federation projects and HPC initiatives.
EGI-ACE is a 30-month project coordinated by the EGI Foundation with a mission to empower researchers from all disciplines to collaborate in data- and compute-intensive research through free-at-point-of-use services.
- EGI-ACE builds on the operational capacity and expertise of the EGI Federation;
- results of the EOSC-hub project;
- co-design and requirement gathering activities;
- data and applications from research infrastructures and collaborations.
The consortium of the project builds on the expertise and assets of the EGI federation members, key research communities, data providers and collaborating initiatives.
Over 30 months, the project is expected to provide more than 82 Millions CPU hours, 250 thousand GPU hours for data processing and analytics, and 45 PB/month for hosting and exploiting research data.
