Emi mission statement

EMI Mission Statement

The European Middleware Initiative (EMI) project represents a close collaboration of the major European middleware providers - ARC, gLite, UNICORE and dCache - to establish a sustainable model to support, harmonise and evolve the grid middleware for deployment in EGI, PRACE and other distributed e-Infrastructures

Primary objectives

Primary Objectives

Consolidate

Consolidate the existing middleware distribution simplifying services and components to make them more sustainable (including use of off-the-shelf and commercial components whenever possible)

Evolve the middleware services/functionality following the requirement of infrastructure and communities, mainly focusing on operational, standardization and interoperability aspects

Reactively and proactively maintain the middleware distribution to keep it in line with the growing infrastructure usage

Evolve

Support

  • EMI Vision and Objectives

  • Standardization

  • DCI Collaborations

  • Conclusions

DCI Workshop


Standardization

Standardization

  • Very important to address a number of existing limitations

    • Interoperability, integration, extensibility and evolution, commercial usage

  • All services must:

    • Implement the ‘best’ relevant standards

    • Implement them in the same way

  • ‘Best’ means:

    • A ‘community’ standard, if it is useful, usable or can be realistically improved

    • A ‘de facto’ standard, if no community standard exists or what exists is clearly not usable

DCI Workshop


Standardization1

Standardization

  • EMI intends to be an active player in the standardization process

    • Actively take part in the European standardization roadmap coordinated by the European Commission and by initiatives like SIENA

    • Actively take part in established international standardization bodies like OGF

  • Dedicated standardization task in the JRA1 WP

DCI Workshop


Interoperability

Interoperability

  • One of the major requirements of most user communities

    • Interoperability between different implementations of the same services or functionality

    • Interoperability among HTC and HPC

    • Interoperability between different infrastructures

  • Also in this case, the widespread and formally correct adoption of standards is of primary importance

DCI Workshop


Integration with new technologies

Integration with New Technologies

  • Technology evolves continually

  • Distributed computing middleware must be able to capitalize on past achievements, but also learn from past lessons and become increasingly efficient and flexible

  • Using labels like Grids or Clouds is misleading

  • How can existing stable, reliable and secure services be made more elastic, dynamic, efficient?

  • And again, standards are very important

DCI Workshop

Dci relationships

DCI Relationships

  • EGI-InSPIRE: requirements, commitment to promote and deploy standards-based services

  • VENUS-C, StratusLab: integration of new resource management technology, dynamic service management models

  • IGE: implementation/validation of standards and interoperability

  • EDGI: implementation/validation of and interoperability

DCI Workshop


Industrial relationships

Industrial Relationships

  • The sustainability process relies on increased adoption by commercial companies

  • EMI has an ‘industrial plan’ made of two important points:

    • Work with commercial partners to transfer and integrate technology in both directions

    • Understand with commercial experts what is the market, the realistic targets and the sustainable business models

DCI Workshop


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • EMI is very committed to be an active player in the standardization roadmap

  • It brings together for the first time the expertise of the major European middleware providers

  • Everybody is welcome to collaborate
