EOSC-hub Technical Architecture

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

This webinar will describe the EOSC-hub proposal for a Technical Architecture for EOSC. The proposed architecture is based on the concepts of service composability and interoperability and aims to facilitate access to services, lower barriers to address complex digital needs, integrate data and services from multiple suppliers, support FAIR data and enable cross-infrastructure interoperability.

The architecture includes functions, interfaces, APIs and standards as technical concepts, with the final aim of fostering interoperability and, ultimately, service composability. It is
based on the concept of individual building blocks usable in fulfilling functions. Each building block is specified with the definition of a technical and interoperability specification that includes an high-level architecture, suggested EOSC standards and APIs and interoperability guidelines. Example of technical and interoperability specifications will be presented during the webinar.

The Fundamentals of Growth Marketing

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Building products isn’t enough. Marketing channels are saturated. Rapid Experimentation and Growth Marketing skills help you beat the competition and keep growing!

Growth comes from a mix of behavioural psychology, coding, creative marketing and data analysis. 

Having spent the last couple of years building, coaching and training regiments of growth teams and growth marketers, in this talk we’ll run you through some of the latest stories, learnings and tricks we’ve learned along the way.

Integrating services into EOSC through EOSC-hub

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The EOSC-hub project operates many of the core elements of the European Open Science Cloud, and acts as the main facilitator of onboarding new services in EOSC. The main entry point for onboarding is the EOSC Portal. This webinar will provides assistance for service providers who want to share services via EOSC with the EOSC Portal and with the use of extra services offered by EOSC-hub. The presentation will describe the various options for onboarding in the EOSC Portal and for integrating with the Authentication-Authorisation Infrastructure, with the Availability-Reliability monitor, with Usage accounting system, with the Helpdesk, with the Service Management System. The webinar is meant to provide an overview of the ‘big picture’ of EOSC onboarding as enabled by EOSC-hub, so providers can choose the best approach for integration into EOSC.

NI4OS Train the Trainers - IT Service Management, FitSM and its relevance to the EOSC service management

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - 14:00 to Wednesday, September 16, 2020 - 16:00

The last NI4OS Train the Trainers event focuses on IT Service Management and its relevance to the EOSC service management. The webinar series goal is to study in more details the processes related to IT Service Management and how they will be applied in the NI4OS project. We start with FitSM as one of the standards used for IT service management. Following the presentations from our guests from EGI Foundation, we then continue with NI4OS specific topics to discuss how the FitSM processes will be implemented in the NI4OS pre-production environment and how service management can be related to FAIR data and used to manage data repositories.

EOSC business model recommendations

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

This webinar supports the public consultation on the EOSC-hub Briefing Paper “Provision of Cross-Border Services”. The paper describes challenges involved in provision of publicly funded rivalrous services such as storage and compute across borders in Europe, with a focus on demanding use cases involving large amounts of resources. The paper discusses opportunities the EOSC could present for key participants and puts forward recommendations for the EOSC, on which feedback is invited via a public consultation. The webinar will describe the work which was undertaken and explain the insights gained and the recommendations which are proposed, and will provide the opportunity for questions and discussion.

The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School

Monday, August 31, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, September 11, 2020 - 13:00

This year the CODATA-RDA school was virtual.

FitSM Foundation Training - Remote

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 - 12:00 to Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 16:00

IT Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is an open, lightweight standard for professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provide crucial help in delivering services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

FitSM is the reference framework being used in several EOSC initiatives, among other research infrastructures as well. Through FitSM, the aim is to conduct effective IT service management in the EOSC federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM that can act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments from EOSC related projects.  

In addition, participants have an opportunity to receive a formal certification backed by certification authority APMG for anyone successfully passing the exam (20 multiple choice questions, 13 required to pass). Both the costs of the training and the exam is covered and offered by the EOSC-hub project for free.

Towards ENVRI Community International Winter School DATA FAIRness

Monday, July 13, 2020 - 09:00 to 12:00

In this webinar, we will discuss the basic concepts of cloud computing, including virtualization, containerization, service models, and cloud application development. We will also discuss how clouds can support data management and scientific workflows in the research infrastructures via examples from ENVRIplus and ENVRI-FAIR projects.

Rolling out ARC6 CE

Monday, July 6, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The Advanced Resource Connector (ARC) middleware integrates computing resources (usually, computing clusters managed by a batch system), making them available via a secure common layer. Conceptually, ARC provides an edge service to batch systems. Through this service, called ARC Compute Element (ARC-CE), scientific communities can launch and manage computational tasks in a uniform manner. 

A bit more than a year ago a non backward compatible major version, the ARC6.0 was released bringing new functionality, enhanced manageability and increased stability to the community. With the availability of the ARC6 release the support for the previous ARC5 deployments are to be discontinued with the end of June 2020.

This interactive webinar will introduce the major new features of the ARC6 release and cover the deployment steps of an ARC6 CE  both as a new installation and as an upgrade from a previous ARC5-based deployment. Special attention will be given to the accounting system related changes and the new one-shop-stop sysadmin toolbox built around arcctl.
