Description

Objectives
This Work Package develops and operates the set of planned VREs and the new ones that will be identified and developed during the Project. To achieve this objective, it uses the services provided by the European data and computing infrastructures and by tools, facilities, and services provided by the organizations supporting the different VREs. In particular, the Work Package will deploy and operate 9 Virtual Research Environments by using WP5-WP8 outcomes.
The entire stack of facilities, from the storage and computing level to the data and application level, is made accessible via a coherent, easy-to-exploit, and policy-based framework that hides the complexities inherent in distributed networks of resources. The operation of the VREs is based on the procedures and integrated tools largely tested and used by D4Science in the last five years. Such procedures and tools, when empowered with the technologies developed in WP9 and WP10, will allow operating the VREs from the first month of the Project. This Work Package is also in charge of managing the software release process covering all stages (building, documentation, validation, distribution).

KO meeting
During the KickOff meeting:
* the Work Package structure and activities have been presented
* the tools SVN, ETICS, BTRT, Distribution Site have been presented
* a new release procedure with major changes in the usage of the ticketing system has been presented. Some discussions started, but they will be finalized off-line during the first month of the project. Once agreed on a final version of the procedure, it will be tested and then replace the current one

September 2015 Activities
In WP4 the milestone MS3 has been achieved by deploying the BlueBRIDGE Gateway to host all the VREs of the project.

In task T4.2 a total of 10 VREs have been created with tools to support the reporting, communication and coordination activities in BlueBRIDGE: BlueBRIDGEProject, AquacultureAtlasGeneration, PerformanceEvaluationInAquaculture, ProtectedAreaImpactMaps, StockAssessment, StocksAndFisheriesKB, StrategicInvestmentAnalysis, KnowledgeBridging, BlueCommons, BlueUptake

In task T4.3 the VREs have been operated. A total of 59 tickets have been created, 42 tickets have been managed, 31 tickets have been closed. Relevant, in this phase, wa the management of the user registration to the VREs: a total of 210 users in 10 VREs.

In task T4.4 some tools updated and/or configured: Redmine (CNR), new Distribution Site (CNR), ETICS (ENG). Integration of gCube 3.9.0 started (ALL)
* New release procedure defined and being tested in gCube 3.9.0 - 101 components released - (ENG, CNR)
* Update of the Integration and Distribution Wiki to reflect new procedures and tools (CNR, ENG)
* Jenkins evaluation started. An instance deployed @ENG and initial tests carried out. To be continued in next months (ENG)

Next six months planned activities
In addition to the routine activities of operation of the D4Science infrastructure (T4.1), management of VREs (T4.2-3) and integration software releases (T4.4), the activities already planned for the next six months are:
* set-up of a separate infrastructure to host testing and preproduction environments
* discuss and agree on a shared procedure to support the exploitation of existing VREs and resources;
* discuss and agree on a shared procedure to support training on existing VREs and resources;
* create a BlueBRIDGE Gateway explicitly dedicated to host the “BlueBRIDGE” VREs;
* create a Wiki page summarising the procedures characterising VREs Creation and Deployment;
* rethink documentation review procedure (in iMarine it has not been effective)
* replace BTRT builds with ETICS remote builds (starting from org.gcube.HEAD) as much as possible
* carry out tests with Jenkins to understand how to use it in gCube release process
* migration to Git. Set-up repositories, update integration procedures and tools
* by M5 GitHub to be used to publish source code after releases

More activities will be discussed and defined during the next f2f meeting in Athens.
