Introduction

EGI delivers integrated computing services to European researchers, driving innovation and enabling new solutions to answer the big questions of tomorrow.

The EGI Software Repository Portal provides a unified point of access for the Middleware Distributions, the Community Repositories and the operational tools developed by EGI-InSPIRE and EGI-Engage. Please refer to the right menu in this page for documentation on installation and configuration of the different distributions.

Unified Middleware Distribution (UMD) is the integrated set of software components contributed by Technology Providers and packaged for deployment as production quality services in EGI. UMD release schedule is available here.

The Cloud Middleware Distribution (CMD) distributes OpenStack and OpenNebula integration components developed by Cloud Technology Providers. Two different distribution are technically available, CMD-OS for OpenStack and CMD-ONE for OpenNebula. For further details, please have a look at the Cloud Middleware Distribution wiki.

All releases and their Capabilities are available as RSS feed as well.

Sites willing to install cutting edge software may use the testing repository where you can find the products of the next UMD Release that successfully passed the 1st stage of verification, as well as the untested repository containing the products that are not tested yet, as received from the Technology Providers.

WARNING: The contents of the testing/untested repositories are NOT certifed nor verified.

The aim of a special community repository, called Preview, is making the updates of the middleware products available from a single endpoint as soon as they are released by the Technology Providers. The same updates will also undergo to the usual UMD verification and staged rollout processes, which require several weeks to be completed; instead, through the Preview repository the resource centres administrators can avoid waiting and apply the updates on their machines as soon as they are announced. Our plan is to release the Preview updates on a monthly basis, after having gathered the relevant information by the product teams.

The Preview repository starts from a mirror of EMI3, which is no longer maintained. EMI3 users should migrate to UMD or Preview software.

Note: EGI provides the preview repository without any additional quality assurance process, but the products are released as they are provided by the product team. EGI recommends the use of the UMD repositories, which contain software verified through the quality assurance process of UMD.
