This is the third joint EGI/EMI/IGE workshop that focuses on the need of an EGI integrated infrastructure for middleware services discovery across heterogeneous grid infrastructures - based on ARC, gLite, GLOBUS, UNICORE – and virtualized resources. The workshop will assess the status of the activities proposed during the previous workshops, which include developments in middleware services and operations tools, as well as high level policies and standards definition and application. The workshop will define the actions to continue the work towards the implementation of a common strategy among the projects, and it is a good opportunity to discuss with the developers and resource providers use cases and requirements.
Description of the work
The main topics of the workshop will be:
- Status of the implementation of GLUE2 in the various services of the different middleware stacks.
- The integration between the middleware service discovery infrastructures and the operational tools.
- Usability and performance of the current information discovery services and new developments.
- Feedback from user communities about the information system usage and related requirements.
Wider impact of this work
As the previous workshops on this topic, the output of this session will be a detailed snapshot of the current status of the information system related developments for the different projects, the actions and the planned activities for the next months. Since Information system is a widely used service, its evolution will influence the operations activities as well as the user community workflows.
