Representatives from the GÉANT Cloud team participated in outreach and training events throughout the year. The last quarter of 2019 was particularly busy. Here are some highlights:
National Cloud Trainings
Four national cloud trainings took place in Ireland, Spain, Belgium and Switzerland during November. These training were organised in collaboration with NRENs and cloud providers.
GÉANT Project Collaboration
The GÉANT Cloud team participated in the meetings of two very active GÉANT project Special Interest Groups (SIG) – SIG-Marcomms and SIG-MSP (Management of Service portfolio). The separate and joint meetings were held in Montpelier France during September 2019. The GÉANT Cloud team provided updates and moderated important discussions on service rollout, management and promotion. At the SIG-CISS (Cloudy Interoperable Software Stacks) meeting in November in Athens, GÉANT’s lead in service offerings presented an update about the GÉANT community clouds work and service delivery plan.
GÉANT Community Clouds Delivery Plan
In October 2019, a webinar on the GÉANT Community Clouds Delivery Plan was delivered to GÉANT General Assembly members. A recording of the webinar can be found here (Federated access required).
GÉANT’s web conferencing tool for academia, eduMEET, was demoed to over 3000 participants at the premier supercomputing event of the year, SC19 in Denver, Colorado in November 2019.
European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)
The GÉANT Cloud team partipated in the Closing Plenary panel interactive discussion about the EOSC implementation roadmap and the future at the EOSC Symposium held in Budapest in November 2019.
