Summary

TSA4.1 - Management

  • weekly report collection

TSA4.2 - MOOC

- New round of videos has been put online - Working on VM for p-grade - Working on final week slide deck - Recorded & edited videos for next week & part of week after (data management & pilot jobs) - Created quiz and exercises - Experiencing some problems with parametric jobs in combination with the tutor VO. Trying to figure out what is causing the problem but so far have not found anything.

TSA4.3 - Liferay

INFN finished work SZTAKI finished work CESNET works on evaluation of the new version 6.2 of Liferay

TSA4.4 - OCCI for CMF

rOCCI framework
rOCCI-server
  • partially completed dynamic linking features
  • continuously adding docs and unit tests for implemented features
ToDo for next week
  • finish dynamic linking features (storagelinks & networkinterfaces

for running VMs)

  • in parallel, continue working on the rOCCI framework
Problems

None

Delays
  • Still approx. one month (== Florian's contribution), no further delay

TSA4.5 - CDMI in CMF

Progress:

- VOMS extension usage on STOXY (STOX-34) -- a longer discussion on mailing list, but no summary. It would be great if AAI leads (Björn?) could summarise the view of Fecloud on this. - Juelich instance was setup and basic tests were performed. - Setup demo instance for testing (STOX-27) -- KTH is reinstalling cloud with Openstack, so created demo instance was destroyed :) Fortunately, saltstack script for deployment is almost finished, so once KTH OS is on, I'll redeploy it. - EUDAT CDMI API discussion (STOX-30) -- unclear yet, f2f meeting in January.

Plans for the next period:

- Finish OpenStack support (STOX-31). - Current directory tree is 'dirty', includes more than CDMI components (e.g. server configuration settings, etc). Reviewing ACLs (STOX-33) - EUDAT API, comments on CDMI frontend (STOX-30) - Demo instance? At least on AWS on OS is delayed (STOX-27) - Interact and followup with Björn on peachnote case. - Add list of deployments to wiki.

Problems we encounter, but can solve:

- 1.5 month delay caused by effort rescheduling

Problems and issues we need external help with:

None

TSA4.6 - OCCI CompClouds

no report given

TSA4.7 - AppDeployment

Progress:

- fixing bugs found when testing frontend with local phenomenology users - implementation of unit tests for the service

Plans for next week:

- document contextualization features - document service deployment - continue testing


TSA4.8 - CloudCapabilities

Progress:
  • BioVeL: Discussing pros and cons of CDMI as a replacement for (T)FTP. Their sync scripts are fairly simple and easy to "port" to CDMI through the use of curl/wget ... using CDMI metadata-related capabilities might help. The question is: Outside of FedCloud, are there any major cloud providers commercial or academic that provide CDMI endpoints to users? Would this change be advantageous for the OM project globally or just within the FC environment?
  • Received a new architecture diagram from PeachNote that helped us better understand how the image we received fits into the whole picture of the use case.
  • Requested ports to be opened up in firewall for PeachNote instances to call external services.
Plans for next week
  • Deal with some small tasks that have been lying around for a while, like triggering the test of our basic image in WNoDeS, StratusLab and Synefo.
  • Also, there's still a blog post pending about keeping images small from within. That needs to be posted.
Problems we encountered, but can solve in the mini-project:

None
