Project Partners 14 Partners + 2 Third Parties from 13 Countries
The EUMEDGRID e-Infrastructure 25 EUMEDGRID sites have been deployed in 13 countries, giving a total of 1800 connected Servers and about 84 TBs of storage capacity
Objectives & Strategic Lines Support the consolidation and expansion of the EUMEDGRID Infrastructure with a special emphasis on sustainability. Hi Level Policy Dissemination Create a Two Level network of Competence Centres Widen the existing human network involving new user communities Strongly cooperate with other projects and initiatives relevant for the Mediterranean
7 User Support and ROC User support will be provided by a 2 levels support structure: – First level, local support to users – Second level centralized support Extensive training will be provided to site administrators – Enabling new resources for local support An EUMED Regional Operation Centre (ROC) will spin off during the project Initial support and training on ROC procedures and tools provided by the IGI ROC (Italian Grid Infrastructure)
