INSTRUCTIONS: Please fill out one survey for each OpenStack project for which you currently use the MOC (so if you are using it for three projects, you will fill it out three times). If you have many projects and the form is too cumbersome, please email Jennifer Stacy, firstname.lastname@example.org
, and she will send you an excel spreadsheet version.
PURPOSE: Due to the success of the MOC, Boston University and Harvard University are creating a production cloud service, the New England Research Cloud (NERC), supported by the professional Research Computing Services staff from those universities. We expect that this production service will enable a significant community of users that do not have the technical skills to use the existing, unsupported MOC service and/or were unwilling to assume the risk of using an experimental service.
As part of that process the Mass Open Cloud will no longer be supporting OpenStack VMs. Those projects will migrate to the NERC.
In order to minimize disruption during this period, and to understand the needs for the future NERC platform, we are asking existing users to complete the following survey to help us plan for that migration.
