Ankabut is involved with the EGI to allow the sharing of GRID resources between researches across the globe, this means that computing/storage loads can be evened out, so that demands can be met when processor intensive applications are required to accelerate research.  While in the quite spell of research, (such as programming or authoring papers), the research’s resources can be offer to other scientists required a processing or storage demand.​
