Description

Over the past decade, CERN-IT has successfully managed thousands of machines for specific services in the CERN computer centre, using dedicated home-grown tools for configuration, installation and monitoring. However, a more dynamic and flexible approach is needed in order to provide new services, reduce inefficiencies, address business continuity, and cope with a remote extension to the Tier-0 compute facility. The presentation will explain the motivation, and introduce the Agile Infrastructure project detailed in the subsequent presentations.
