What is the EGI Applications Database (AppDB)?


The EGI Applications Database (AppDB) is a central service that stores and provides to the public, information about:

  • software solutions in the form of native software products and/or virtual appliances,
  • the programmers and the scientists who are involved, and
  • publications derived from the registered solutions

Reusing software products, registered in the AppDB, means that scientists and developers may find a solution that can be directly utilized on the European Grid & Cloud Infrastructures without reinventing the wheel. This way, scientists can spend less or even no time developing, porting or even using a software solution to the Distributed Computing Infrastrures (DCIs). AppDB, thus, aims to avoid duplication of effort across the DCI communities, and to inspire scientists less familiar with DCI programming and usage.

The EGI Applications Database is open to every scientist, interested on publishing and therefore sharing, his/her software solution. The only prerequisite, is to be owner of a valid account. After that, you will be able to take advantage of the authenticated write-enabled features of the AppDB service and more specific to register your software product and/or virtual appliance.
