This WP5 Activity Report described the activities performed in June 2012 by Beneficiary and Task.

It is part of the June Monthly Report.

T5.1 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Operation

CERN Activities

CERN has organized and started the infrastructure upgrade to gCube 2.9.0. During the period, both iMarine and D4science.org portals have been upgraded together with the gCube Apps VOVirtual Organization; services. The preproduction infrastructure ( Ecosystem VOVirtual Organization; ) has also started to be upgraded, activity which is still blocked because of some issues on the remote undeployment facilities.

The new VRE BiodiversityResearchEnvironement has been also deployed and made accessible trough the D4science.org portal. The status of the infra, the current issues and the plans have been presented during the iMarine TCOM in Rhodes

CERN was also active in debugging and fixing some issues of the CNR UMD site.


The infrastructure upgrade is still not completed ( FARM VOVirtual Organization; and part of the iMarine portal components still running gCube 2.8.1).


The BiodiversityResearchEnvironement VRE has been deployed.

T5.2 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Nodes Provision

CNR Activities

CNR has been keeping up and running the provided nodes hosting GHNs. The configuration issue on UMD1 reported in M7 has been solved.

  • Maintained the provided infrastructure operational

NKUA Activities

NKUA has been keeping up and running the provided nodes hosting GHNs, UMD and the gcube wiki. During this month, among others, we attended 2nd TCom Meeting, encountered and solved computer-room's air-conditioning issues, tested upgrading gcube wiki, upgraded dl19.di.uoa.gr memory from 2 to 3 gbs because containers were running out of memory and solved UMD Apel publishing issues.
