Project summary

EGI-ACE empowers researchers from all disciplines to collaborate in data- and compute-intensive research across bordersthrough free at point of use services. Building on the distributed computing integration in EOSC-hub, it delivers the EOSCCompute Platform and contributes to the EOSC Data Commons through a federation of Cloud compute and storagefacilities, PaaS services and data spaces with analytics tools and federated access services.The Platform is built on the EGI Federation, the largest distributed computing infrastructure for research. The EGI Federationdelivers over 1 Exabyte of research data and 1 Million CPU cores which supported the discovery of the Higgs Boson and thefirst observation of gravitational waves, while remaining open to new members.The Platform pools the capacity of some of Europe’s largest research data centres, leveraging ISO compliant federatedservice management. Over 30 months, it will provide more than 82 M CPU hours and 250 K GPU hours for data processingand analytics, and 45 PB/month to host and exploit research data. Its services address the needs of major researchinfrastructures and communities of practice engaged through the EOSC-hub project. The Platform advances beyond thestate of the art through a data-centric approach, where data, tools and compute and storage facilities form a fully integratedenvironment accessible across borders thanks to Virtual Access.The Platform offers heterogeneous systems to meet different needs, including state of the art GPGPUs and acceleratorssupporting AI and ML, making the Platform an ideal innovation space for AI applications. The data spaces and analyticstools are delivered in collaboration with tens of research infrastructures and projects, to support use cases for Health, theGreen Deal, and fundamental sciences.The consortium builds on the expertise and assets of the EGI federation members, key research communities and dataproviders, and collaborating initiatives.
