OMII-Europe Open Middleware Infrastructure Institute for Europe
(this project has ended)

OMII-Europe is an EU project which has been established to source key software components for Grid applications and to ensure that these components can interoperate across heterogeneous Grid middleware platforms. OMII-Europe is an Open Systems project that endorses both the use of open standards and open source. OMII-Europe has chosen particular open standards for the Grid that it believes are essential to interoperability across global resources. The OMII-Europe vision is to harvest open-source, Web-Services-based, Grid software components from across Europe and to supply these Grid services in a form that will enable them to interoperate across the platforms: gLite, UNICORE and Globus. The emphasis is on the re-engineering of software components rather than on the development of new technology. OMII-Europe will develop a repository of quality-assured Grid services running on these existing major Grid infrastructures. The drivers for OMII-Europe are interoperability, quality-assurance and establishing itself as an impartial broker, giving advice on heterogeneous Grid solutions.
