PL-Grid tasks in EGI

In the framework of cooperation with EGI, PL-Grid project is involved in:

  • council activities - among the current 7 members of the Executive Board there is a PL-Grid representative
  • EGI-InSPIRE - through PL-Grid Partners’ contribution to:
    • Global Tasks: 'Grid operation and oversight of the e-Infrastructure' as well as 'Coordination of resource allocation and of brokering support for NGI VOs',
    • International Tasks (like all other NGIs),
    • Computational Chemistry – organization and management of Computational Chemistry and Material Science and Technology Specialized Support Centre (CCMST SSC) and EGI liaisons,
    • Development of unified middleware via European Middleware Initiative,
    • Scientific application porting, especially concerning UNICORE architecture, within Application Porting SSC.

PL-Grid Security Center (CB), led by the Wroclaw Centre for Networking and Supercomputing (WCSS), actively represents the Project in the EGI. We participate, among others, in the activities of the EGI Computer Security Incident Response Team. Within these activities, CB representatives have recently participated in the EGI CSIRT working meeting held in Karlsruhe. In mid-May, within the whole EGI, the Site Security Challenge was run - a campaign to check the response of administrators to simulated security incidents. CB is responsible for coordination of these activities in the Polish centers and cooperation with other countries and the EGI infrastructure.

PL-Grid as Polish NGI is obliged to provide some services interfaced to EGI:

  • service availability monitoring system,
  • issue tracking and user support system,
  • accounting system.
