Joining EGI as a provider

Guidelines for service providers to join the EGI Infrastructure

In these guidelines, we describe the set of actions a service provider should follow to join the EGI Infrastructure, and to ensure the high-quality delivery of service according to the EGI policies.

Providers have different options to become members of the EGI Federation, and deliver services for advanced computing within the EGI Infrastructure. The options are documented below, linking to detailed instructions:

  1. Joining as a federated resource centre, becoming a provider (that we call Resource Centre) delivering one of the following services: Cloud Compute, HTC Compute, Cloud Container Compute, or Online Storage. More than 200 Resource Centres have been integrated in this way.
  2. Joining as a software provider, also called Technology Provider, which is providing middleware deployed on the federated resource centres.
  3. Joining as a new provider for an existing service in the Compute and Data Federation or the Platform services, such as DataHub, Notebooks, Training Infrastructure, and Workload Manager
  4. Joining as Core/Central service provider for services supporting all the other services of the EGI Infrastructure.
  5. Contributing a new service, enabling advanced computing in research and education, and not yet present in the EGI service portfolio.
