We obtain a formula for the modulus of metric regularity of a mapping defined by a semi-infinite system of equalities and inequalities. Based on this formula, we prove a theorem of Eckart-Young type for such set-valued infinite-dimensional mappings: given a metrically regular mapping F of this kind, the infimum of the norm of a linear function g such that F+g is not metrically regular is equal to the reciprocal to the modulus of regularity of F. The Lyusternik-Graves theorem gives a straightforward extension of these results to nonlinear systems. We also discuss the distance to infeasibility for homogeneous semi-infinite linear inequality systems.
