Monthly meeting of the WLCG Grid Deployment Board
See also Twiki GDB area for actions and summaries
One of the goals of WLCG Operations Coordination activities is to help simplify what the majority of the sites,
i.e. the smaller ones, need to do to be able to contribute resources in a useful manner,
i.e. with large benefits compared to efforts invested.
Classic grid sites may profit from simpler mechanisms to deploy and manage services.
Moreover, we may be able to get rid of some service types in the end.
New sites may rather want to go into one of the cloud directions that we will collect and document.
There may be different options also depending on the experiment(s) that the site supports.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution. We will rather have a matrix of possible approaches,
allowing any site to check which ones could work in its situation, and then pick the best.
In this session we present activities already ongoing or planned,
and we will look for ideas worth pursuing in a task force.
