BiG Grid Virtualization of Worker Nodes proposal

Objectives
  • Phase 1: Provide a design and Proof-of-Concept for virtualized worker nodes that fulfil requirements of different user communities (Q2 and Q3 2009). Take into account the different efforts already under way in this respect.
  • Phase 2: focus on attainable first implementation in Q4 of 2009
Resources (working group members)
  • Sander Klous (NIKHEF, chair)
  • Pieter van Beek, Ron Trompert (SARA),
  • Marc van Driel (NBIC)
  • Ronald Starink (NIKHEF)
Other users and communities must be part of this effort but not necessarily part of the working group
‘Opdrachtgevers’
  • BiG Grid Executive team
Boundary conditions
  • System must function on the type of BiG Grid resources available now
Planning
  • start: March 1, 2009
  • end Phase 1: June 1, 2009
  • end Phase 2: December 31,2009
Activities
  • Phase 1:
    • Attain requirements form different user communities and use cases.
    • Take into account different efforts on worker node virtualisation in Europe and check their applicability with repect to the above use cases.
    • Write up of first design
  • Phase 2:
    • Implementation of Proof-of-Concept on a dedicated resource at NIKHEF, SARA or Life Science Grid.
    • Build customized virtual machine Images for one or two selected application domains.
Deliverable
  • Phase 1: design for a Proof-of-Concept
  • Phase 2: Implementation of Proof-of-Concept
