WP3 StructureTWP3.1 Coordination of the Activity (Led by INFN)TWP3.2 VRC Support (Led by CLARA)TWP3.2 Validation, Documentation and Training (Led by CIEMAT)www.gisela-grid.eu34TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (1/3) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012Monitoring the work carried out by each VRC supported by GISELAVRCs were continuously monitored during the whole projectThe GISELA Science Gateway (GSG) has been designed in a VRC-driven format to better evaluate the VRC workTo evaluate requests from new applications interested in being deployed on the GISELA production infrastructureA public survey to propose new applications has been available from the first phase of projects (currently integrated on the VRC-driven GSG, https://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/integre-una-nueva-aplicacion-al-sg)Applications have been also identified through direct contacts with CLARA and Latin American NRENs

www.gisela-grid.eu45GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (2/3) To setup and maintain a database with all sort of information about the supported applications and VRCsAvailable at https://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/application-databaseTo keep track of the usage of the production infrastructure by the supported VRCs as well as all scientific publications generated by their membersVRCs have been continuously monitored, in collaboration with CLARA and NRENs, to identify and support applicationsAll GISELA scientific publications are listed in the GISELA web-site (http://www.gisela-grid.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=43&Itemid=41)VRCs related publications have been listed in Deliverable D3.4www.gisela-grid.eu56GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (3/3) To work in close collaboration with WP2 providing inputs to dissemination pieces and websitesThe GSG layout has been designed in collaboration with WP2GSG contents management has been jointly done by WP2 and WP3WP3 provided WP2 with several inputs to prepare bulletins, short articles, etc.To evaluate the technical and scientific impact of the supported VRCsCLARA & NRENs have performed analysis of VRCs technical and scientific impact (which led to the restyling of the GSG layout)We selected applications according to this analysis

Group the applications users/developers into VRCs according to their commonalities. Propose the creation of new VRCsA Task Force, made of WP3, CLARA and NRENs, identified key VRCs and applications through both a dedicated survey and direct contactsAs a consequence5 VRC-specific dedicated sections have been created in the GSG89 applications are supported out of which 59 are in production status16 applications are integrated in the GSG

www.gisela-grid.eu78GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012TWP3.2 Objectives & Achievements (2/2) Work in close collaboration with WP4 and WP6 to install all libraries, packages and/or services required by a particular VRC in the CE nodes of the GISELA production infrastructureAlmost all the gridified applications needed custom libraries and packages that have been installed at the Resource Centres by WP4A new JSAGA adaptor has been created by WP6 to integrate OurGrid resources in the GSGThe adaptor for OurGrid will be integrated in the official JSAGA release as a GISELA contributionAnswer tickets related to the Applications/Users support and issued by developers and users via the central support ticket systemWP3 answered all tickets related to the Applications/Users support (see the WP4 presentation for ticket statistics)

Provide specific training to application developersSpecific training events have been organised to port new applications on the Grid Infrastructure5 in the whole duration of the project3 of them expressly devoted to the integration of applications into the GSG during Y2www.gisela-grid.eu910GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012TWP3.3 Objectives & Achievements (2/2) Validate the Grid services deployed by WP4 and WP6Grid services deployed by WP4 and WP6 have been fully tested

Create and maintain a repository of self-training materialsThe GISELA self-training materials repository contains 79 documents (User guides, Installation guidelines, FAQs, etc.) available at:http://documents.gisela-grid.eu/collection/Project%20Training%20Material?ln=enwww.gisela-grid.eu10GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012GISELA Science Gateway(http://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it)The GSG is a Web-based environment that allows users to fully exploit the e-Infrastructure - computing (jobs) and storage (data) services - in a very easy way, hiding the complexity of underlying Grid Middleware11
