The structural biology community published an extensive presentation showcasing the successes of the 10-year-old collaboration with EGI.
The community’s MoBrain collaboration is developing online portals for life scientists worldwide and relies on High-Throughput Computing and Online Storage services provided by the EGI Federation. In total, seven EGI data centres have offered around 75 million hours of computing time and more than 50 TB storage capacity to the research collaboration.
The MoBrain portals powered by EGI resources are: HADDOCK, DisVis, AMBER, CS-Rosetta, FANTEN and PowerFit. The web portal HADDOCK, for example, has so far processed more than 198,000 submissions from over 10,000 scientists, which translates into 8 million HTC computing jobs to EGI resources per year.
More usage trends and results of the partnership are available in the presentation.
The collaboration with EGI continues at the present time with a suite of dedicated thematic services within the EOSC-hub project.
This 1-hour webinar will take place Tuesday, 13 June 2017, from 14:00 to 15:00 (CEST) and will provide you with an overview of the EGI Applications on Demand (AoD) service. The service was specifically designed for individual researchers, small research teams and early-phase research infrastructures who do not have access to dedicated computational and storage resources, online applications and science gateways to perform scientific data analysis.
The service is available via a lightweight registration and offers access to a growing number of scientific applications and application hosting frameworks (such as science gateways, VREs) that are configured to use the dedicated pool of cloud computing and HTC clusters from EGI.
The AoD service operates as an open and extensible hub for EGI-related providers and e-user support teams who can use the service to share and make available applications, services and/or compute-storage capacity at the European level.
The target audience of the webinar is:
- NGIs and national user support teams: they can use the service to serve national users or to promote and make available their national applications and gateways/VREs to foreign users.
- Representatives of research infrastructures or scientific communities/projects: they can use the service to serve their long-tail users with generic or domain specific applications, before/without committing to long-term resource allocation through EGI.
- Researchers and small research teams: they can learn about the applications and tools available for them in this service.
The webinar doesn’t require registration.
