This should evolve to questionnaire which should map state of user-groups using FedCloud and working with our mini-project. We have to create questionnaire, fill it with already known information and only then approach users.

Feel free to edit, just first ideas!

Image preparation

How image was created, managed, should we help with preparation?

  • how many images is used by this group (one, several with different functions)?
  • how was is created? From scratch, from basic OS image, using full-installation, copy of desktop, group already provides ...
  • is it one partition with system, more disks with data, empty space for other data (packages, user data)
  • is everything installed in image? Is it installing packages/software during/after boot?
  • image prepared to run with KVM/Xen, in OVF?
  • kernel version?
  • how new versions should be installed? No, rarely, via vmcatcher, other way.
  • signed? endorsed? verified by some RP?
  • HW requirements
  • network requirements (public IP, open ports, firewall, running in VPN, expected bandwidth)

Workload management

How actual work is submitted to running VM?

  • some pilot framework? BOINC? call home?
  • scheduling? Is autoscaling usable/needed?
  • how long should VM run?

AAI and contextualization

  • some support for user contextualization? Already/would be nice/not needed.
  • system with pre-installed ssh, know root password, ssh public key, group accessible public key, other way to login, remote desktop, need for user contextualization (storing ssh key in authorized_keys)
  • some support for system contextualization? Already/would be nice/not needed.
  • ... a lot of questions ...

Data, big data

  • is application working with some big data? If yes, which type of access is needed
  • ... a lot of questions ...

What else
