EGEE Project

Middleware Engineering

The overall goal of the Middleware Engineering activity (JRA1) is to provide and maintain selected middleware services of the gLite distribution satisfying the basic requirements of users in terms of functionality and performance as well of operations in terms of manageability and deployability. While pursuing this goal attention will be laid on evolving the services towards interoperable solutions, wherever possible by adhering to established standards. JRA1 will particularly focus on providing robust foundation services (security infrastructure, information system, access to compute resources (compute element) and access to storage resources (storage element)) ensuring efficient operation of the EGEE infrastructure as well as selected higher level Grid services identified in previous phases of the EGEE programme.
