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
your assessment here your score here how to improve N/A
NA2.1N NGI International Liaison
Average 3 Focus on fewer key communities and adapt the infrastructure to met their requirements
NA2.6N Distributed Competency Centre
Average 3 Have more focused activities with clear objectives aimed to extend the infrastructure to to better serve the key communities targeted by NA2.1 Will continue those activities that have a national impact

*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 Overall good 4 Funding concerns often dominate the management activities; no simple solution for that Less focus on central operation/services
SA1.2N A Secure Infrastructure Overall good, but difficult to guarantee x509 user certs + site security. Still ok given the low criticality of the infrastructure (as it is perceived from the outside?) 3 In the long term reduce x509 necessity? Move security procedures to VOs/local teams within the NGIs
SA1.3N Service Deployment Often important updates are delayed into UMD -> the repository might not be used after the end of the project. The Documentation is VERY POOR + yaim is going to bedeprecated (MAJOR problem) 2 simplify repository structure if possible, follow Linux distros procedures when possible. several repo from the software providers, involve non HEP VOs for maintenance (difficult)-> cloud/VM templates better for certain use cases
SA1.4N Infrastructure for Grid Management Overall good, as mostly based on WLCG 4 involve non HEP VOs -> cloud solutions. Expand cloud solutions for non HEP users (from hep centered to non HEP centered?)
SA1.5N Accounting ARC accounting is still not fully integrated. 3 Difficult to maintain/improve after the end of the project
SA1.6N Helpdesk Infrastructure Overall good. The required effort seems however fairly high 4 Render more efficient (less manpower required) and involve non HEP VOs if possible Difficult to maintain/improve after the end of the project-> VOs should take over this effort (non HEP VOs will face major problems)
SA1.7N Support Teams Overall good, but difficult to maintain after the end of the project 4 Allow 1 to 1 interaction (via chat/phone) with sys admins/users, when needed. move this effort to the VOs when possible. Non HEP VOs will face major problems.
SA1.8N Providing a Reliable Grid Infrastructure Overall good, but mostly because based on WLCG, which also provides some internal monitoring and quality assurance 5 Better and more efficient monitoring move monitoring to VOs, drop some unnecessary tasks

**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.
