In the table below, you should provide your self-assessment for the EGI-InSPIRE "NGI International Tasks" for milestone MS124 "NGI International Tasks Review"

For more information on how to complete the tables, read the dedicated Instructions Page


Notes:

  • This milestone is an assessment of services from a managerial perspective and should be reported as an evaluation of the services (e.g. objectives being met; resources to effort; issues; suggested strategic changes).
  • 'DO NOT' report what your NGI did for those tasks/services as this is covered by the Quarterly Reports.
  • In order to edit this page, you need to log in with your EGI SSO account and click 'edit' on the tab (top of this page).


Community Engagement


EGI-InSPIRE Task Task Name Assessment Score How to Improve After EGI-InSPIRE**
*NA2U.2E Marketing
The website and the communications channel (wikis, twitter etc..) improved a lot. The EGI Champion scheme could also help, but it's too early for an assessment. 4 Make more visible the activities of the Champions and marketing activities within the NGIs through dedicated newsletter similar to the one used for NILs communication, but dedicated to marketing.
NA2.1N NGI International Liaison
The NIL is a good concept and is importand to improve the knowledge sharing and the building of the "social network" EGI needs. VTs are also an imprtant activity for the same objectives. 4 NILs should meet more often that just at the Forums. Maybe a good timing is every quarter after having filled the quarterly report, so that main NGI activities can be reported to the others and cross-chekced with the information entered in the CRM and AppDB. Concerning the VTs maybe we should start a phase of more technical, now most of them where focused on community building a requirements definition. This activity is important to be continued after InSPIRE
NA2.6N Distributed Competency Centre
This is an important activity and we think that many communities in Italy had benifit from it. Dedicated consultancy is more effective than general purpose training but need a lot of effort. 4 Effort to this activity should be increased This activity is important to be continued after InSPIRE

*Please provide your external assessment on the quality of the service, which is delivered as a Global Task (scores and feedback will be included as part of MS123 - Global Task Review).
**Please comment on the continuation or service impact at the end of EC funding regarding the EGI-InSPIRE task/service.


Operations

EGI-InSPIRE Task Task Name Assessment Score How to Improve After EGI-InSPIRE**
SA1.1N NGI Activity Management Regular meetings and workshop are effective and useful to coordinate the overall activity across the NGIs 5 This activity is very important to be continued after InSPIRE in order to maintain a distributed E-infrastructure
SA1.2N A Secure Infrastructure Very valuables work in particular concerning the security monitoring and the support to the sites in case of security incident. 4 The security alerts and vulnerabilities assessment should be a little bit improved. This activity is very important to be continued after InSPIRE in order to maintain a distributed E-infrastructure
SA1.3N Service Deployment Staged rollout is a very important process and a real added value for EGI Communities. 4 Faster rollout, more early adopters. The coordination of the SR should be continued after InSPIRE in order to maintain a distributed E-infrastructure
SA1.4N Infrastructure for Grid Management Lots of core Grid services are provided in a reliable infrastructure 4 automate the provisioning of core Grid service using a IaaS infrastructure. Better distribution of core services in order to optimize the management effort It is important to assess the number of core services needed in the whole infrastructure in order to optimize the management effort and minimize the costs.
SA1.5N Accounting sites started to publish UserDNs; there are some lacks about storage and cloud metrics 3 adding new metrics (cloud, network, storage). Web portal improved, but still not so user friendly Central accounting is very important in order to maintain a distributed E-infrastructure
SA1.6N Helpdesk Infrastructure The architecture of the helpdesk infrastructure based on a central instance (GGUS) and regional (and often completed independent) instances is very good. 5 At least the central support instance (GGUS) is needed in order to efficiently support the overall infrastructure.
SA1.7N Support Teams The support is overall good, support people are regularly trained, good documentation available 5 The distributed support model is very important for the whole infrastructure. Non HEP VOs will face major problems.
SA1.8N Providing a Reliable Grid Infrastructure sites availability is monitored and their performance are very good 4 Users are not aware of failing instances (instances were SAM test are failing). Information about these failure should be available to the users This activity is very important to be continued after InSPIRE in order to maintain a distributed E-infrastructure

**Please comment on the continuation or service impact at the end of EC funding regarding the EGI-InSPIRE task/service. If you have no information you can leave this column blank.
