1. D4.6 EGI Operations Architecture: Infrastructure Platform and Collaboration Platform Integration
This document presents how services that are part of the EGI operations portfolio, which contribute to the implementation of the EGI Infrastructure Platform and Collaboration Platform, can be adopted and/or extended by external Research Infrastructures (RIs) to support integrated operations. The adoption of EGI operations tools, deployed and developed within EGI-InSPIRE, allows the reuse of existing solutions that address the typical needs of any distributed RI.

3. VO Registration Process in EGI
The document describes the process of enabling a Virtual Organisation (VO) on the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) and the parties who are involved in process execution. Users of EGI are organised into Virtual Organisations (VO). A VO is a group of people (typically application scientists and application developers) who share similar interests and have similar goals and who need to work collaboratively and/or need to share resources (e.g. data, software, expertise, CPU, storage space) through a grid infrastructure regardless of their geographical location. The focus of this document is on the tasks that VO representatives and the EGI staff have to accomplish in order to register and validate a new VO on EGI. The goal is to capture the VO registration workflow so it can be executed and further improved by user communities and by the EGI staff. At the moment of writing this workflow is closely coupled to the implementation of the CIC Operations Portal (http://operations-portal.egi.eu).

4. MS421 - Integrating Resources into the EGI Production Infrastructure
This document describes and defines the operational interfaces that must be supported for resources to be integrated into EGI. This includes operational tools provided by the EGI-InSPIRE JRA1 activity and procedures and policies defined to ensure interoperability within EGI and in the interaction with other DCIs, the adoption of best practices and compliance with service level agreements.
5. Recommendations to improve the Applications Database and Operations Portal services to better serve scientific communities
In April 2012 EGI.eu opened an Application Expert secondment position for the NGIs. In May 2012 Jelena Tamuliené from the Lithuanian NGI has been selected for the position and she worked in the EGI.eu User Community Support Team between July-September. Jelena’s scientific background is in Computational Chemistry and one of her first tasks in the secondment position was to review the profiles of applications and tools that the NGIs offer in the EGI Applications Database (AppDB) for ‘Computational Chemistry and Material Sciences’ communities and to make suggestions on improving these application profiles, as well as the AppDB service itself for such communities.
The review of application and tool software entries of AppDB is covered in the first section of the document. The second section is a summary of the feedback that Jelena provided on the AppDB service itself, together with recommendations from the EGI.eu User Community Support Team on how to improve the AppDB and Operation Portal services in order to address the reported issues.

7. Integrating openModeller with the EGI Federated Cloud
OpenModeller is a generic framework that includes various modelling algorithms and which is compatible with different data formats. Its functionality is available through command line, desktop and web services interfaces, allowing integration with other specialized services that could help for example finding input data for the modelling process. The CRIA institute in Brazil operates an openModeller server. The server implements the openModeller web service API and runs as a CGI application.
This use case aims to virtualise the openModeller server running at CRIA and setup/operate an high available instance of in Europe using resources from the EGI Federated Cloud. The instance would serve the Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory (BioVel), which supports research on biodiversity topics using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary sources. BioVeL offers the possibility to use workflows to process data, be that from one's own research and/or from existing sources.
This presentation shows the current status of the work done.
