This paper is about UNICORE, a European Grid Technology with more than 10 years of history. Originating from the Supercomputing domain, the latest version UNICORE 6 has matured into a general-purpose Grid technology that follows established Grid and Web services standards and offers a rich set of features to its users. An architectural insight into UNICORE is given, highlighting the workflow features as well as the different client options. The paper closes with a set of example use cases and e-infrastructures where the UNICORE technology is used today.
