Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow 3. Background… A Year in the Life of Globus
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow 2. Background… UK e-Science Development 1.The UK e-Science Production Grid will have significant overlap with the GridPP2 Production Grid –Mutual benefit to engagement –e.g. convergence talks organised prior to Christmas –GT2-based approach 2.OMII developments will be based upon the Web Services Resource Framework –The OMII delivery timescales are in 2005 onwards –Incorporates e.g. OGSA-DAI –Limited overlap with our proposed programme
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow 1. Background… LCG Development 1.AliEn provided a pre-Grid implementation 2.ARDA provides a framework for PP application middleware –We can and should (and do) participate here –Identify your development within this structure

Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP2 Posts GridPP2 Approved - £15.9m plus a possible further £1m to LCG at CERN subject to strong case to Science Committee* –Essentially the so-called "Regained Programme" GridPP2 Tendering Process –Proforma-1s (Report on GridPP1 Work) received by 12 December Assessed by PMB by 9 January Currently feedback being sent to PIs by TD –Proforma-2s (Specification of future work) available by 19 December –Proforma-3s (Bids for posts) received by 9 January Assessed by Peer Review Selection Committee (PRSC) on 16 January *Planned for next PPARC committee meetings
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow PRSC Outcome and Future Timeline 33 Bids approved –subject to varying amounts of iteration on deliverables 4 Bids not yet approved –but should be - subject to successful renegotiation of deliverables 2 part bids to be re-tendered for one post (BaBar) 7 bids rejected 1 new post to be re-tendered for one post (Portal) By 1 March –DB to develop detailed Financial Plan (against which new PPARC grants can be signed off) After 1 March –iteration/discussion on Project Map deliverables Mid March to Mid April –JES Submission as soon as discussions complete Need to assess impact of ARDA, Metadata Group....

Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow SysManExperiments Developers Deployment Board User Board Dissemination Team Developer Team GridPP2 PMB High Level View Opinion Formers PMB
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow The PMB is the central part of the management structure. The Project Management Board meets approximately weekly to: 1.determine the detailed objectives of the project; 2.approve the allocation of resources to meet these objectives; 3.ensure timely progress is made towards meeting the objectives; 4.report on progress to the Oversight Committee; 5.inform the community of progress, formally via the Collaboration Board; 6.establish an identity for GridPP2 reflecting the set of GridPP deliverables; 7.ensure that GridPP2 is visible externally and is recognised as a flagship project.

Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow SysMan GridPP2 Deployment Board Terms of Reference The Deployment Board is the body at which technical developments and problems wider than a single Working Group or Tier Centre are discussed and solved. The Deployment Board meets approximately quarterly to: 1.determine and execute the technical project plan necessary to implement the strategy of the Project Management Board on the deployment of a production quality grid for Particle Physics; 2.report to the Project Management Board, through its chair, on progress towards this goal; 3.ensure that problems and ideas with implications beyond individual working groups are discussed and solved in the most efficient manner; 4.provide a forum in which all constituent parts of the project can exchange information on technical issues of mutual interest; 5.manage the deployment of GridPP2 hardware resources in the UK, ensuring they are efficiently and effectively used to deliver the Particle Physics Grid with the minimum of duplication; 6.deal with matters of coordination and liaison between UK Tier1 and Tier2 centres; 7.ensure that technical developments elsewhere, particularly at CERN, are efficiently integrated into the project. Deployment Board
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow User Board Experiments The User Board ensures that the requirements for the major Particle Physics experiments that will use the Grid are properly taken into account in the strategy of the PMB. The User Board meets approximately quarterly to: 1.ensure that the GridPP2 project remains science driven and that the project develops to meet the needs of the UK Particle Physics community; 2.keep an overview of both technical and experimental software developments, ensuring these developments are compatible; 3.facilitate close working relationships between the UK experimental collaborations to identify common areas for the development of Grid-enabled experimental software; 4.overview the major hardware purchases within GridPP2 to ensure compatibility with the needs of the experimental collaborations and between collaborations; 5.promote the use of the developing Grid structures for a wide variety of computing needs in the whole of the UK Particle Physics community.

Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow coherent deployment and use GridPP Middleware Workshop 4/5th March To review: 1.achievements and lessons learned from GridPP participation in DataGrid 2.Proforma-2 planning in light of LCG/EGEE 3.short-term plans between end of DataGrid and the start of GridPP2 4.Transition of the TB/DB In context of WSRF and ARDA Ongoing discussions within EB To review: 1.transition of the EB/UB 2.possible role of applications manager 3.job scheduling and priority grid time 4.metadata system 5.generic portal 6.widening the ARDA computing model beyond LCG?
Tony Doyle - University of Glasgow GridPP2 Planning We will specify management/technical roles in advance of GridPP2 to ensure we are successful in developing/deploying the Production Grid By the end of this GridPP2 specification process we will be able to: –Continue the work started in GridPP1 (by many people) –Define the GridPP2 Project Map tasks and metrics –Appoint additional people in recognised areas to contribute to agreed tasks/roles –Contribute fully to EGEE/LCG –Start to go from Prototype to Production Anticipate new management/technical posts and holders are defined before GridPP10 meeting at CERN in June
