Urgent computing enables responsible authorities to make educated decisions by supporting the computations of simulated predictions of time critical events. Unfortunately, most domains of science cannot afford dedicated resources for their urgent computing problems. As a solution, exploiting existing e-Infrastructures is invaluable for many problems if the wide array of available resources in today's e-Infrastructures can be utilised. In this paper, we focus on rarely occurring events that are best suited for urgent computations on existing HPC, Grid and Cloud e-Infrastructures. Since e-Infrastructures are meant to serve more than just one community of users, they have inherent characteristics that have to be modified or adapted in order to enable them effectively for urgent computing. We hope to demonstrate that there are many existing and on-going developments that can be leveraged to prepare existing e-Infrastructures for urgent computing. © 2013 The Authors.
