Cloud compute 

Run virtual machines on-demand with complete control over computing resources.

With Cloud Compute you can deploy and scale virtual machines on­-demand. Cloud Compute offers guaranteed computational resources in a secure and isolated environment with standard API access, without the overhead of managing physical servers.

Cloud Compute offers the possibility to select pre­configured virtual appliances (e.g. CPU, memory, disk, operating system or software) from a catalogue replicated across all EGI cloud providers.

To access the service you need to:

  1. Request access selecting one of the service options below.
  2. Set the relevant parameters and add the service to the cart.
  3. Go to the cart and submit your order.
  4. You will receive an email summarising your order.
  5. You will be contacted by the EGI support team.
