EGI Applications Database (AppDB)

EGI Applications Database (AppDB)

The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) has launched the Applications Database (AppDB) to store information about tailor-made computing tools for scientists and scientific application developers to use, and about the programmers and scientists who developed them. The applications and tools filed in AppDB are finished products, ready to be used on the European Grid Infrastructure and other European Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCI).

The goal is to promote the reuse of these tools to avoid effort duplication and to easy infrastructures utilization.

These are then similiar goals as those of PLUME.
