Transparent data movement from EGI to EUDAT

The main goal of the EOSC-hub project is to synergize the services and infrastructures from major European providers including EGI and EUDAT, enabling researchers to freedom of choice of the services, data and infrastructure necessary for their work.  Users from many communities have reported interest in being able to use resources provisioned by these 2 infrastructures simultaneously in a transparent fashion, i.e.:

  • using single sign on mechanisms between infrastructures
  • being able to transparently transfer data between infrastructures

EOSC-hub WP6 has been endeavoring to enable transparent data access between the infrastructures. The main data management components in EGI and EUDAT are respectively, EGI-DataHub based on Onedata platform and B2SAFE/B2STAGE based on iRODS. Currently no transparent mechanisms allowing users to move data between these infrastructures exists, the only options are manual transfers using such tools as GridFTP.

These two demo videos present the managment of data transfer across EGI, EUDAT, INDIGO data and compute services. 

The first demo video shows the how data can be transparently moved from EGI to EUDAT. It divided into 4 sections:

  • Registration of B2STAGE storage in EGI-DataHub
  • Creation of dsata space in EGI-DataHub supported by the B2STAGE storage
  • Upload of some data to the data space
  • Data access from GUI and command line

The second demo video presents import of existing data from EUDAT to EGI. The demo is divided into the following 4 sections:

  • Registration of B2STAGE storage in EGI-DataHub
  • Creation of data space in EGI-DataHub supported by the B2STAGE storage from which existing data is imported to EGI-DataHub
  • Access of data from B2STAGE using EGI-DataHub user interface
  • Automatic discovery of new data added on the B2STAGE storage

Train the trainer

These training materials are provided during the train the trainer webinar, 23 Oct 2018. Three presentations were given:

  • WP11 requests for EOSC-hub (recording)
  • How to use EOSC-hub online training catalogue (recording)
  • Best practices for training delivery (recording)

 

Launching a Kubernetes Cluster using TOSCA and OpenID

This video shows how to use the IM web interface to launch a Kubernetes Cluster using a TOSCA document on a OpenStack on-premise cloud platform using INDIGO IAM OpenID credentials.

The EGI Applications Database (AppDB)

The EGI Applications Database (AppDB) was recently expanded with the Virtual Machine Operations (VMOps) dashboard. The VMOps dashboard provides graphical interfaces and high-level services for users to manage Virtual Machines and Virtualised Appliances on federated cloud infrastructures, particularly on the EGI Federated Cloud and community-specific cloud federations, for example the ELIXIR Competence Centre Cloud Federation

The EGI Federated Cloud is a seamless network of academic private clouds and virtualised resources, built around open standards and focusing on the requirements of the scientific community. Access to this infrastructure was until now possible via programming APIs and command line interfaces. The VMOps dashboard, the topic of this webinar, recently extended the possibilities with a graphical portal interface, significantly reducing the burden to manage virtualised resources in federated clouds.

This webinar will introduce the key capabilities of the VMOps dashboard, particularly: 

  • A wizard-like builder that guides users through the selection of virtual machine images, virtual appliances, cloud resources and contextualization scripts to deploy complex applications or services in federated clouds.
  • Graphical interfaces and tools to monitor and manage your applications/services in federated clouds, independently of underlying cloud technologies.
  • A scalable architecture composed of a generic front-end and several, technology-specific back-ends for load balancing, and with a RESTful API to integrate with 3rd party services.

The EGI Applications Database is developed and operated by the Institute of Accelerating Systems and Applications (IASA) on behalf of the EGI Foundation as an EGI Core Service.

 

PaaS Orchestrator

This training video introduces the PaaS Orchestrator develped by INDIGO-DataCloud. The service collects high-level deployment requests from the software layer, and coordinates the resource or service deployment over dynamic Mesos clusters or directly over IaaS platforms.

B2ACCESS

The training introduces the B2ACCESS Service. B2ACCESS is an easy-to-use and secure Authentication and Authorization platform developed by EUDAT. B2ACCESS is versatile and can be integrated with any service.
