EGI Federated Cloud


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
