Abstract

The focus of the session is on foreseen middleware development, maintenance,
and support in the EGI framework. Main goals of Unified Middleware
Distribution (UMD) are, apart of ensuring continuity of supporting services
deployed currently, achieving convergence of the three European middlewares
(improving interoperability, reducing costs ...), and setting up sustainable
processes of middleware handling. Clear focus of UMD is on maintenance (in
a broader sense), while the processes are open for input of new development.

UMD preparation team keeps working since it was formed in late 2008. Results
of the work done so far will be presented, as well as overview of the UMD
project, being prepared at the time of the conference. Second part of the
session is dedicated to reports on specific transition plans of the main
middleware providers. The session will be concluded with a panel discussion.
