        Simplifying storage 20m
        How can we use new technologies to make it simpler to run Tier-2 storage? How does automated failover and remote access to data change the landscape? Can we negotiate changes with WLCG and the experiments to accommodate "best effort" storage provision?
        Speaker: Dr Samuel Cadellin Skipsey (University of Glasgow / GridPP)
        Slides

        Simplifying job execution 20m
        Recommendations for simplifying the operation of Tier-2 sites using virtualization. Can we leverage experiments' support for VMs to shift some sysadmin burden to them? Can we leverage cloud infrastructures provided by university IT services?

        • Questions for discussion (from the technical meeting): 15m
          - Clouds, where next? Are they awesome or evil or do we simply need to keep a prototyping testbed? - Cloud Technologies (OpenSTack, OpenNebula, Containers, VAC/Vcycle ...). What should our workplan be? - (From Raul after the meeting) How do we achieve: Resource Pooling, Rapid Elasticity, Broad Access, Monitoring without reverting to people like AWS - Security and Clouds: o How do different technologies resolve traceability? o Security training and policy (similar to how security exercises for Grids) o Interactions with site security - how on earth can they trust us? o ARGUS/glexec - centralised banning - (From Raul after the meeting) Our present storage solutions o Our storage systems (DPM/dCache/no-matter-the-flavor) are cluttered/bloated with layers of unused software. o Our storage architecture (DPM/dCache/Lustre/etc) is vulnerable by design.
