Discussion:

Dan presented the marketing efforts and progress on federated IaaS. Federated identiy will evolve, but we will not be spending too much time or enegery at that for Glenna II

SNIC: Blueprints used by SciLifeLab: this could be a Glenna Success Story for scientific community impact


Glenna SG 16-34. Hiring and project plan opportunities for Glenna2

(Michaela)

Discussion:

Bring in concrete use cases!

SciLifeLab (Ola Spjuth) potential opportunity. Meteo use case participants interested in continuing. Norstore plan to use a Kubernetes platform and likely NextCloud for research data repository. CSC will also move to OwnCloud. Preservation of long term data not even in the scope of SNIC.

Lessons learned from Glenna-I is to not necessarily divide PM's equally; it is more important to match competencies so try to make a plan for the next year: an inventory of potential staff.

We could do a common job announcement for unmatched effort. Uninett: WLCG moving larger part of work into the Cloud. NT1 resources up for renewal could be made cloud-based. Opportunity for a Glenna use case? SNIC: not wanting to turn our cloud into a Grid.

Suggestion: Have a workshop Kubernetes cluster in the OpenStack cloud.

Policy could be user and location mapping or data and data location access to all the cloud services and active support how to use them

SNIC: appoint team leaders for aim2 and aim3 and these will be the focus areas.

The team leaders and Dan make the specific plans. Three months planning horizon.

Uninett: The aims should be focused into concrete targets.

The project plan will be a living document.

Glenna-II should have its own web page.

Decision:

Glenna SG 16-35. New collaboration agreement

(Michaela)

Discussion: NeIC: Collaboration Agreement will be similar to the document signed in Glenna-I.

Voting: Full quorum is needed right now, instead could be 3/4.

Partners could take over FTE:s if there is a resource shortage in one country.

UNINETT: When there are DP:s in the agreement they should be on the agenda for the corresponding SG meetings.

Signatures for the agreement will be collected individually.

Michaela will circulate the CA draft to the SG members.

Decision:

Glenna-II will be the official project name.

Glenna SG 16-36. Supporting use cases who come with their own funding

Discussion:

CSC: Suggestion: Geologoical societies as use case.

SNIC: SciLifeLab (Ola Spjuth) potential opportunity.

PM: Meteo use case participants interested in continuing.

SNIC: The project should actively support use cases for AIM4, i.e. workshops etc.

NeIC: No additonla funding will be available for external use cases.

Since there is no funding the project needs to be active in marketing the benefits to the use case owners. Free access to experts can bee seen as funding.

Glenna SG 16-37. AOB

(15 mins)


Discussion:

Item: Future connections to European projects

NeIC board will discuss European initiatives. Since the partners participate in different areas, NeIC could take a coordinating role.

Decision:

Glenna SG 16-38. Next meeting

(5 min)

Decision:

15th of February 2017 Nordunet Offices Copenhagen Denmark
