1 This work has been funded by the EGEE project European Grid Initiative Towards a Sustainable Production Grid Infrastructure NGI Status Report Diana Cresti, INFN EGI Workshop Munich, February 2007

2 Munich, Feb 2007 EGI Workshop - NGI Status Report 2 Introduction Countries reported on the state of their NGI & views of an EGI NGI questionnaire conducted during summer 2006 These are preliminary findings, and cannot replace interactive exchange of information 30 countries replied; near unanimity on forming an EGI Full report is being published now: https://edms.cern.ch/document/804043/1/EGEE-II-NA5-DNA v3.doc

11 Munich, Feb 2007 EGI Workshop - NGI Status Report 11 Caution: please check data ahead… Online tool was not interactive, but this workshop is Some ambiguity in questions  opportunity here to clarify NGI status evolving rapidly  most data from July 2006, and not updated since then These data are invaluable, well worth “getting it right”

12 Munich, Feb 2007 EGI Workshop - NGI Status Report 12 NGI Financial Status Have you guaranteed sustainable funding for the NGI? Yes: 8 No: 13 No reply: 4 Any additional sources of funding for the NGI?

36 Munich, Feb 2007 EGI Workshop - NGI Status Report 36 Other Functions / Stakeholders Other proposed functions of EGI - some brief quotes: Cross country efforts / collaboration between NGIs; Service for major new infrastructures (ESFRI); Relationship with e.g. GEANT/DANTE; Provision of guidelines / specification of cleaner & more atomic interfaces Political support for NGIs / unified interface to EU bodies; Establish a “business” scheme (tokens to use facilities);  See handout Table 4  Other stakeholders besides proposed set (NGIs, user communities, EC) - some brief quotes: The research community; e-IRG; possibly CERN; National funding agencies / Ministries  See handout Table 5  Part A

37 Munich, Feb 2007 EGI Workshop - NGI Status Report 37 Conclusions & Next Steps Commonality of vision with respect to EGI Move beyond questionnaire format  Interactive knowledge base NGI definition vs. actual status Sustainability: a work in progress 22 application areas (at least) NGIs are coming together as we speak  the time is right for EGI
