APAC Geosciences Project Goals for 2006

Status Updated - -- RyanFraser - 03 Nov 2006


This page details the goals for the APAC Geosciences Project over 2006. We are aiming at completing and if not exceeding these goals.

The Goals

  1. ) Snark deployed onto at least 3 sites in Australia (iVEC, APAC-NF and VPAC)
  2. ) Snark service deployed onto the corresponding ng2 machines at these sites
  3. ) At least 4 sites federated as part of the Geosciences SRB Federation (CSIRO-ARRC, CSIRO-HPSC, APAC-NF and iVEC)
    • Possibly ACCESS and VPAC (at their discretion)
  4. ) Template codes for ws-rf services on the APAC grid
    • Produce generic ws-rf service code for job submission on the APAC grid and place in a publicly accessible svn repository to aid community development of new grid services
  5. ) "How to get Grid" guides for Geosciences
    • Publish notes on how to get grid on the SeeGrid twiki, document all the steps required to getting a service grid'ified and or using the grid
  6. ) Finley deployed onto iVEC and APAC-NF
  7. ) Finley service deployed and running at iVEC and APAC-NF
  8. ) Fast Flow deployed onto iVEC and CSIRO-HPSC
  9. ) Fast Flow service deployed and running at iVEC and CSIRO-HPSC
  10. )Fully documented workflow for grid usage o Document usage of all that has been produced on the SeeGrid twiki
  11. ) Registry service with client GUI for dataset registration and discovery
  12. ) Users - get Geoscience community users on board and using and embracing the Grid!

  • Nimrod base WS deployed to Grid
  • Integrated Nimrod WS into the pmd*CRC Desktop Modeling Toolkit both as a demonstration of how to use it and because it is needed
