Welcome to FuturGrid MoveΒΆ

FutureGrid Move is a service that enables physical resources re-allocation among infrastructures. By using a simple command line interface, this service is able to de-register a machine from a particular infrastructure and register it in another one. Internally, this service makes use of Teefaa to dynamically provision the selected machine with the OS and software needed for a successful registration in the new infrastructure. FG Move also maintains a database with information about the machines composing each one of the different infrastructures. The database can be consulted to obtain detailed information about a particular infrastructure.

Currently, we support HPC infrastructures (Torque-based) and cloud infrastructures based on Eucalyptus and OpenStack frameworks. Additionally, we are working to provide support to other cloud infrastructures based on Nimbus and OpenNebula frameworks.
