About EMI About EMI

The European Middleware Initiative (EMI) is a close collaboration of the three major middleware providers, ARC, gLite and UNICORE, and other specialized software providers like dCache.

The project's mission is to

  1. deliver a consolidated set of middleware components for deployment in EGI (as part of the Unified Middleware Distribution - UMD), PRACE and other DCIs,
  2. extend the interoperability and integration with emerging computing models,
  3. strengthen the reliability and manageability of the services and establish a sustainable model to support,
  4. harmonise and evolve the middleware, ensuring it responds effectively to the requirements of the scientific communities relying on it.

This area helps you understand how EMI is structured and how you can interact with its organization.
