WP2 fortnightly meeting

      Speakers: Rosie Bolton (Square Kilometre Array Organisation) , Xavier Espinal (CERN)


      • EOSC-Future amendments to the original proposal have been submitted.
      • WP2/WP5 joint workshop, two half-day sessions to happen between 29 march and 9 april. 
        • Doodle poll to be circulated next week by Yan.


      • (almost) Finished the round of updates from the participating institutes (IN2P3 next week).
        • Thanks for your contributions so far. We have good material to discuss among the Task leads and define a program of work that fulfills both partner institutes interests and the project roadmap.
        • Identified several common fields of interests between sciences and partner institutes, this will driving the second phase of the Data Lake prototype.
        • A mix between scientific and technological goals are in the pipeline and looking promising for a challenging full-scale test of the prototype in a year from now.


      • Possibility to leverage the Data Lake infrastructure with end-user oriented and/or educational purposes through the Analysis Platforms and Notebooks Infrastructure.
        • In particular there is a common interest to collaborate with CS3MESH4EOSC as we have common partners and experiments (e.g. LOFAR) that could lead to a promising proof of concept, involving the full chain from students working on notebooks to data ingestion and distribution. ​​​​​​​


      • Scope for the next months scope is to achieve significant understanding on how the ESCAPE Data Lake can integrate external and heterogeneous resources: commercial clouds, site’s ephemeral resources and HPCs. This is milestone M30 of the project. ​​​​​​​


      • (I) Need to reactivate the synergies with ARCHIVER to activate the ISO 16363 certification process for CERN and some of the partners in ESCAPE (DESY and PIC)


      Milestones and deliverables review

      • M2.5 (M30): Extension of the data lake to efficiently serve data to external compute resources providers
        • Means of verification: Progress report; Monitoring web site
          • In progress, LAPP is taking the lead (Frederic Gillardo)
      • M2.6 (M32): ISO 16363 certification process underway in core data centres 
        • Means of verification: Progress report; core data centres finished self-certification audit and ready to submit to external audit.

      Updates from participating institutes

      I would like to have updates from participating institutes: status, plans (prototype phase), particular fields of interests, experiment links, etc. We could dedicate the next two meetings to this activity and to align it with the different task plans. I propose:
