Introduction

As of 31.05.12 the GOCDB service is provided through two portals: a read only instance at goc.egi.eu and a read/write instance at gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk. We would like to consolidate these and provide the service (including PI) through one read/write portal at goc.egi.eu.

History

Two portals were provided to support the deployment of multiple "regional" read/write portals containing different data. These "regional" portals would publish their data to the "central" read-only portal. A central read/write portal was provided for NGIs who didn't want to host their own regional GOCDB instance. However as a regional synchronised GOCDB doesn't yet exist this separation confuses users.

If a regional synchronising GOCDB is developed in future we can revert back to the old model.

Plan

  1. Bring up the planned changes at JRA-1 (Done 24.05.12)
  2. Create an RT ticket from the proposal and send it round OTAG/OMB (noc-managers@mailman.egi.eu; otag@mailman.egi.eu), JRA-1 + SA-1.
  3. Agree on a date
  4. Widely disseminate the change
    1. No more gocdb4.esc.rl.ac.uk
  5. Make the change

Technical Plan
