This page collects information about surveys relevant to the EGI Operations Community and the EGI Technology Providers (such as EMI, IGE, etc.). Surveys are conducted to collect information about deployed software, operational tools and generally speaking to collect feedback from Resource Infrastructure Providers and Resource Centres.


NGI services provisioning and usage

Overview

The NGI operations sustainability survey provides indications of little progress in securing new funding to support national operations services to compensate the end of EC funding expected after April 2014 with the end of EGI-InSPIRE. Through EGI-InSPIRE EC currently contribute to the 33% of the operational costs of national grid infrastructures.

Costs of running operations can be partly reduced by sharing operational services with other NGIs and by increasing their efficiency by centrally coordinating the deployment of core services. With this survey we aim at collecting NGI expressions of interest in exploring some of these deployment scenarios in preparation to the end of EGI-InSPIRE. The results of this survey will be used to plan actions for a transition to the period after EGI-InSPIRE.

Use of configuration management tools in the EGI resource centres

Overview

The support of the common components of yaim (glite-yaim-core, in the EMI products list) after the end of the EMI project is being discussed, and the product teams responsible of EMI/gLite components currently relying on YAIM, may decide to move to a different configuration mechanism in the future.

Several sites are already using various software configuration management tools (e.g. puppet) to deploy their middleware services, and if in the future it will not be possible to set up grid services with a homogenous configuration file (e.g. the site-info.def used by yaim) the deployment and configuration of grid resource centres may rely more heavily on these configuration tools.

Survey purposes: The results of this survey will be used by the EGI Operations Management Board to identify suitable replacements for yaim,for those EGI/gLite products for which yaim support will be abandoned (if this will be the case), and to encourage NGIs and sites to share their current experiences with these tools, and best practices.
