Cloud Compute

Run virtual machines on-demand with complete control over computing resources

Cloud Compute gives you the ability to deploy and scale virtual machines on-demand. It offers guaranteed computational resources in a secure and isolated environment with standard API access, without the overhead of managing physical servers.

Cloud Compute offers the possibility to select pre-configured virtual appliances (e.g. CPU, memory, disk, operating system or software) from a catalogue replicated across all EGI cloud providers.

With Cloud Compute you can:

  • Execute compute- and data-intensive workloads (both batch and interactive)
  • Host long-running services (e.g. web servers, databases or applications servers)
  • Create disposable testing and development environments on virtual machines and scale your infrastructure needs
  • Select virtual machine configurations (CPU, memory, disk) and application environments to fit your requirements
  • Manage your Cloud Compute resources in a flexible way with integrated monitoring and accounting capabilities

You can apply for a 6-month pilot access (to try the service, to prototype and validate applications/services), or for specialised access (long-term, more capacity, GPUs, community specific support).
