Deploy the following services on the EGI Federated Cloud:

  • Preservation Aware Data Management: Dropbox equivalent online storage for direct and dynamic data handling during information creation time
  • OAIS Complaint Archive
  • Collaborative Task-based Search & Access: ElasticSearch Server for searching metadata, provenance, full-text, pictures and video
  • User Interface

Use case requirements

  • All LTP services will run on dedicated virtual machines
  • EGI monitoring service will supervision the virtual machines
    • Furthermore monitoring services should monitor services in virtual machines, e.g. at least for a life sign aka ping
    • Potential response:
      • Notification of administrator
      • Automatic recovery, replacement or extension of virtual machine
  • EGI backup service to store the virtual machines, setups, etc.
  • EGI User handling and authorization and “single point of authorization”
  • Workflows on dynamic extensions of storage and CPU based on service level agreements and monetary resources
  • Easy and flexible “billing”

HW requirements

  • 1-3 VMWares: Standard Ubuntu LTS with 1 CPU & Diskspace
  • 1-3 TB Shared Data Storage (1 TB for the community platform storage, 1 TB for the archive and 1 TB for indexing information).
