FitSM Advanced SPD - Service Planning and Delivery

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 14:00 to Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 14:00

T 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 a lightweight approach to 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 provides crucial help in providing 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.

This two-day Advanced level course aims to provide individuals with deeper knowledge into the ITSM processes focusing on service planning and delivery.

The EC3 portal in the EGI Applications on Demand service: how to create virtual elastic clusters on the EGI Federation

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - 10:00 to 11:00

EC3 (Elastic Cloud Computing Cluster) is a tool to deploy virtual elastic clusters over multi-clouds. It is a web tool that facilitates the access to Cloud computing platforms to non-experienced users. A virtual cluster can be deployed with a few clicks. It maintains the “traditional” work environment: clusters configured with a LRMS (SLURM, SGE, Kubernetes, etc.) and scientific applications (Galaxy, NAMD, etc.).

EC3 provides automated elasticity management. Working nodes are added or removed depending on the workload of the cluster without any user intervention and it supports a wide range of cloud providers (public, federated and on-premises) including EGI FedCloud.

FitSM Foundation Training (EGI Conference 2019)

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 08:30 to 17:30

This is one-day Foundation level course provides an agnostic introduction to the basic IT service management concepts and terms, outlines the purpose and structure of FitSM standards and their relationship to other standards, and details the formal requirements defined within it.

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 both EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot projects, among other research infrastructures as well. Through FitSM, the EOSC-hub project aims at conducting effective IT service management in a federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM that can act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments where disparate organisations must cooperate to manage services.

Jupyterhub Deployment - hands-on training

Monday, May 6, 2019 - 15:30 to 17:30

Jupyter provides a powerful environment for expressing research ideas as notebooks, where code, test and visualizations are easily combined together on an interactive web-frontend. JupyterHub allows to deploy a multi-user service where users can store and run their own notebooks without the need of installing anything on their computers. This is the technology behind the EGI Notebooks service and other similar Jupyter-based services for research.

Services to support FAIR data

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 - 13:00 to 17:00

OpenAIRERDA Europe, FAIRsFAIR and EOSC-hub are happy to announce a series of three workshops, two in April and one in September, called ‘Services to Support FAIR data’.

This is the second workshop.

The purpose of these workshops is to explore how existing infrastructures can work together and understand how to deliver services that support the creation of FAIR research outputs. The three half-day events, tailored to different audiences, will examine the scholarly and research ecosystem, what exists, what could be modified, and will give insights into optimum service provisioning. They will also be a chance to engage experts and audiences on how to turn FAIR data into reality.

 

Training on the EOSC-hub AAI: the service provider perspective

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 11:00 to 12:30

This training session will provide an overview of the various integration workflows in support of resource providers’ needs for federated access through the EOSC-hub AAI. These workflows build on standards and open technologies, including SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect, and OAuth 2.0, in order to support the integration of web-based services. The session will also cover more advanced workflows for addressing non-web-based access use cases (e.g. command line and API). In this context techniques for obtaining credentials on behalf of the end-user using OAuth tokens and X509 proxy certificates through online authorities will be presented.
