PROMINENCE is a platform which allows users to exploit idle cloud resources for running containerised workloads. From a user’s perspective PROMINENCE appears like a standard batch system but jobs can be run from anywhere in the world on clouds anywhere in the world.

Computing resources are provided by EGI Federated Cloud sites.

PROMINENCE was originally developed in the Fusion Science Demonstrator in EOSCpilot. The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project was funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563. This work is also co-funded by the EOSC-hub project (Horizon 2020) under Grant number 777536.
