Deployment of a central ARGO monitoring engine able to serve a large infrastructure with an high availability setup.
With the introduction of a Centralized Monitoring Engine, accompanied with an HA active-active setup, Compute Engine needs to be able to accept metric data from two centralized sources at the same time. Thus, there were two major design goals for the Compute Engine implemented. Compute A/R & status results by accepting data from multiple monitoring engines and exclude data for specific periods for problematic monitoring engines.
in progressUsers, NGIs, Resource centers, RIin further activities other than the projectThe ARGO Availability and Reliability Monitoring Framework is used by the ARGO Monitoring Service that is operated by EGI for the monitoring of the availability and reliability of the EGI infrastructure. The ARGO Monitoring Service can be provided also to research communities and other infrastructures as a service in order to monitor the status, availability and reliability of their services.Open Source License Apache 2.0 The new version of the ARGO Monitoring Framework has already been adopted by the production ARGO Monitoring Service. In order to further exploit the results, we should promote the service also to research communities and other infrastructures that can benefit of its features.http://argo.egi.eu/

Furthermore, users will be able to register published data through the Open Data Platform on EGI resources. EGI users will be able to directly publish data registered in EGI resources centers and Open Data Platform will handle all data requests coming from outside of EGI infrastructures. Open Data Platform will furthermore handle access to open data from computational resources in EGI sites.Open Source LicenseApache 2.0
Currently Open Data Platform is being integrated into the EGI operational
services via procedure PROC19 (https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/PROC19). Once this is complete, selected data centers
federated in EGI infrastructure will deploy Onedata and register it with EGI
DataHub service to provide a distributed open data environment for

When operational, the marketplace will be linked to the EGI web site and customers will be redirected there to navigate into the EGI service catalogue and request access to one or more services. Existing of this new “door” to easily access the EGI services will be advertised using all the available EGI communication channels.
Effectiveness of this new tool will be simply monitored counting the number of accesses and the service requests performed through it. The latter value will be compared with the number of service requests done through the traditional channels.

WP6SA2.1TrainingEGI.euGergely SiposThematic services integratedKEY for bothSoftware and ServicesTraining infrastructureA cloud-based infrastructure for trainings. This training infrastructure is hosted as a dedicated resource pool, a Virtual Organisation (VO), on the EGI Federated Cloud infrastructure. The infrastructure provides resources and services for face-to-face events, online training courses (Webinars, MOOCs) or self-paced learning modules.
The training VO is integrated with the ‘per-user proxy factory’ solution of EGI to generate personal, but short-living proxy certificates in an easy way, for trainers and trainees. Such proxy certificates can identify students individually, and have limited lifetime - typically few hours or days, depending on the length of the training event.
The infrastructure can be extended with customised training environments on-demand. These environments can be implemented and deployed on the infrastructure in the form of Virtual Machine images.
completedRIs, international research collaborations and the long-tail of science, SMEsdeveloping/creating/marketing product/service/process
Provide an infrastructure that demonstrates services of the EGI federated cloud. In this operational mode the infrastructure can accommodate courses that focus on the usage of the EGI cloud services themselves. Such courses typically target programmers or other technical members of scientific communities or projects.
Offer a baseline cloud infrastructure for training courses about scientific software and services. In this operational mode the representatives of the community (the trainers) deploy custom Virtual Machine images on the training infrastructure before the training, and these images offer the training environment for the students. Because of the cloud-based operational model the students can have dedicated training environments, and the community can benefit from the easy deployment, predictability and repeatability of courses.

Dedicated presentations and tutorial at event.
The training infrastructure was used in July 2015 for two face-to-face training courses that trained programmers about the use of the EGI Federated Cloud (so the first operational model above). The focus of these courses were on the use of the rOCCI client interface to interact with the EGI cloud (instantiate, delete, access VMs). During these courses the training infrastructure included three cloud sites (CESNET, BIFI, UKIM) and hosted approx 25 student per event. Before the event the trainers prepared a basic VM that included the rOCCI client (with the training VO pre-configured in it), one user account for each student with a short-term certificate copied under each (with 24h lifetime). One instance of the VM was started on the infrastructure by the trainers before the event and the student were provided with login details for the user accounts. After logging in the students could use the OCCI commands of the rOCCI client with their own short-term certificates and could manage virtual machines on the 3 cloud sites of the training infrastructure.

WP6SA2.6DARIAH CCMTA SZTAKI (DARIAH CC)Peter KacsukThematic services integratedKEY for bothSoftware and ServicesDARIAH Science Gateway with integrated web-applications The DARIAH Science Gateway aims to become a central hub and the access point to the EGI FedCloud infrastructure and services for the researchers coming from the digital Arts and Humanities domains, with the special emphasis on DARIAH community.
The gateway provides a web interface, based on the WS-PGRADE/gUSE technology, for accessing the DARIAH-CC and EGI services, such as cloud sites. The gateway is a eduGAIN service provider and connected with the DARIAH AAI. The gateways is based on the robot-certificate solutions.
Currently, the gateway supports (via portlets) several user-oriented services:
Simple Cloud Access service
Workflow development portlet
File transfer service
Parallel Semantic Search engine
Semantic Search engine

1. Simple Semantic Search Engine (SSE): Allows users to search in the e-Infrastructure Knowledge Base (Open Access Document Repositories and Data Repositories).
2. Parallel Semantic Search Engine (PSSE): A parallelised version of SSE enabling simultaneously search across the e-Infrastructure Knowledge Base, Europeana, Cultura Italia, Isidore, OpenAgris, PubMed and DBpedia platforms.
3. DBO@Cloud: A Cloud-based repository presenting 100+ years old collection of Bavarian dialects.
4. Cloud Access service: Single-job applications and parameter-sweep applications can be run on the DARIAH VO clouds without porting efforts.
5. Workflow Development service: Complex workflow applications can be developed and run on all the resources of the DARIAH VO.
6. File transfer service: Enables transferring data from, to and between storage services providing HTTP, HTTPS, SFTP, GSIFTP, SRM, iRODS and S3 protocols.
first release demonstrated in Oct 2016All Arts and Humanities researchers, which could be both institutional (with facilities like authentication) and non-institutional, that want to use a service that is provided via EGI infrastructure. Individual researcher, research groups, service providers coming from DARIAH-ERIC. In addition, DARIAH Working Groups and DARIAH (DH) related projects (international collaborations). in further activities other than the projectThe services and applications that are found useful by the DARIAH user communities will be selected for further development; the long term vision is that useful services become operated as part of the DARIAH RIOpen Source LicenseApache 2.0 licenseThe DARIAH Science Gateway supports the DARIAH Virtual Organization.
The detailed user documentation on how to use the gateway itself and the specific services offered can be found on the directly on the gateway web-site and on the DARIAH Competence Centre wiki pages: wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Competence_centre_DARIAH. The technical support for the gateway will be provided by the DARIAH Competence Centre and after the end of the EGI-Engage project, the operational activities will be transferred to the DARIAH working group “Cloud infrastructure”.

The gateway itself continuously receives security upgrades, and also will be upgraded to future versions of WS-PGRADE/gUSE. Users may contact the administrators through the fForum provided on the gateway itself: https://dariah-gateway.lpds.sztaki.hu/forum. This forum also provides a platform for discussion about the different portlets offered by the gateway.
