www.gisela-grid.eu Grid Initiatives for e-Science virtual communities in Europe and Latin America WP3 User Communities Support Achievements Diego Scardaci (WP3 Manager) (INFN Catania- Italy) Final Project Review Brussels, 11/10/2012 Slide 2 www.gisela-grid.eu 2 Outline Work Package Objectives Achievements Answers to Reviewers Conclusions GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Slide 3 www.gisela-grid.eu 3 WP3 Objective and Structure GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 The main objective of WP3 was to provide specialised support and training to all users of the GISELA e- Infrastructure The GISELA Science Gateway has been a strategic development of WP3 over Y2 to attract more users (e.g. from Regional Communities) providing them with friendly interface, hiding grid complexity WP3 Structure TWP3.1 Coordination of the Activity (Led by INFN) TWP3.2 VRC Support (Led by CLARA) TWP3.2 Validation, Documentation and Training (Led by CIEMAT) Slide 4 www.gisela-grid.eu 4 TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (1/3) GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 Monitoring the work carried out by each VRC supported by GISELA VRCs were continuously monitored during the whole project The GISELA Science Gateway (GSG) has been designed in a VRC- driven format to better evaluate the VRC work To evaluate requests from new applications interested in being deployed on the GISELA production infrastructure A 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) 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 Slide 5 www.gisela-grid.eu 5 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (2/3) To setup and maintain a database with all sort of information about the supported applications and VRCs Available at https://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/application-databasehttps://gisela-gw.ct.infn.it/application-database To keep track of the usage of the production infrastructure by the supported VRCs as well as all scientific publications generated by their members VRCs have been continuously monitored, in collaboration with CLARA and NRENs, to identify and support applications All 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)http://www.gisela-grid.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=43&Itemid=41 VRCs related publications have been listed in Deliverable D3.4 Slide 6 www.gisela-grid.eu 6 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.1 Objectives & Achievements (3/3) To work in close collaboration with WP2 providing inputs to dissemination pieces and websites The GSG layout has been designed in collaboration with WP2 GSG contents management has been jointly done by WP2 and WP3 WP3 provided WP2 with several inputs to prepare bulletins, short articles, etc. To evaluate the technical and scientific impact of the supported VRCs CLARA & 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 Slide 7 www.gisela-grid.eu 7 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.2 Objectives & Achievements (1/2) Identify potential new VRCs in Latin America working in close collaboration with the CLARA partner. Group the applications users/developers into VRCs according to their commonalities. Propose the creation of new VRCs A Task Force, made of WP3, CLARA and NRENs, identified key VRCs and applications through both a dedicated survey and direct contacts As a consequence 5 VRC-specific dedicated sections have been created in the GSG 89 applications are supported out of which 59 are in production status 16 applications are integrated in the GSG Slide 8 www.gisela-grid.eu 8 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.2 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 infrastructure Almost all the gridified applications needed custom libraries and packages that have been installed at the Resource Centres by WP4 A new JSAGA adaptor has been created by WP6 to integrate OurGrid resources in the GSG The adaptor for OurGrid will be integrated in the official JSAGA release as a GISELA contribution Answer tickets related to the Applications/Users support and issued by developers and users via the central support ticket system WP3 answered all tickets related to the Applications/Users support (see the WP4 presentation for ticket statistics) Slide 9 www.gisela-grid.eu 9 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.3 Objectives & Achievements (1/2) Coordinate the GISELA training activities, profiting from the person-power previously trained with EELA and EELA-2 frameworks 14 training events (7 in Y2) have been organised and held during GISELA, compared to the 6 pledged in the DoW Tutors have been selected from the list of persons trained in EELA and EELA-2 projects Provide specific training to application developers Specific training events have been organised to port new applications on the Grid Infrastructure 5 in the whole duration of the project 3 of them expressly devoted to the integration of applications into the GSG during Y2 Slide 10 www.gisela-grid.eu 10 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 TWP3.3 Objectives & Achievements (2/2) Validate the Grid services deployed by WP4 and WP6 Grid services deployed by WP4 and WP6 have been fully tested Create and maintain a repository of self-training materials The 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=en Slide 11 www.gisela-grid.eu GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 GISELA 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 Middleware 11 Multi Languages support New Look & Feel designed by WP2 and CLARA-TT Slide 12 www.gisela-grid.eu Multi-language support (as of today, Spanish and English) Authentication based on Identity Federations An open Identity Federation named GrIDP (http://gridp.ct.infn.it/) has been created to serve all LA countries where an Identity Federation is not yet operationalhttp://gridp.ct.infn.it/ Authorisation managed via LDAP registry Multi-middleware interoperability based on the SAGA OGF standard (JSAGA API) allows to submit jobs and move data on GISELA, using both gLite and OurGrid The GSG is compliant with the EGI VO Portal and Grid Security Traceability & Logging Policies A new generation application registry allows users to directly submit selected applications through the GISELA e-Infrastructure Training Material is available 12 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 GISELA Science Gateway Main Functionalities (1/2) Slide 13 www.gisela-grid.eu 13 GISELA - Final Project Review - Brussels - 11/10/2012 GISELA Science Gateway Main Functionalities (2/2) VRC-driven and oriented: One specific section for each supported VRC containing applications information GISELA Virtual Room: to organise virtual seminars or meetings Success Stories A section to propose new applications to be integrated in the GSG Access through credentials provided by the most famous social networks (e.g. Facebook) and a community page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/GISELAScienceGateway- Community/347171765358049 https://www.facebook.com/pages/GISELAScienceGateway- Community/347171765358049 Slide 14 www.gisela-grid.eu GISELA -
