2.1. User Support achievements

During PQ10 NGI_CZ user support activities for new and current communities focused on the following main areas:

  • continuous bulk production and user support in VO auger, atlas, alice, voce, metacentrum,...
    • VO voce: the improvement of the available documentation for local users
    • VO metacentrum: improvement of documentation, installation of new application software accessible via local grid only (therefore not involved in EGI application database)
    • VO auger: First discussions about possible use of the DIRAC as a file catalog and possible also production system. Tests of file transfers to a new SE associated with the Prague site but located in Pilsen (aka distributed Tier2). Demonstration of jobs submition to the test cloud site during EGI TF demo.
