In the period from September 23 to September 25, 2019, a working meeting of the ARGO team was held in SRCE, which, as part of the H2020 EOSC-hub project, works on the development, integration and maintenance of central infrastructure and collaboration services.
The ARGO team, made up of experts from GRNET (Greek Research and Technology Network) from Greece, CNRS (fr. Center National de la Recherche Scientifique) from France and SRCE, as part of the EOSC-Hub project have, for the past 18 months, maintained and developed the central e-infrastructure monitoring system for EOSC, called ARGO.
During the three-day stay in SRCE, a team of experts analyzed the achieved results in the previous period, resolved current problems in the operation of individual components, and planned further improvements to the ARGO monitoring system and ARGO messaging service. The ARGO monitoring system monitors all EOSC services, sends incident alerts and reports on availability and reliability of individual headquarters. The ARGO messaging service enables efficient communication between distributed components. It is currently used by the central ARGO monitoring system and Operations Portal services, and is being integrated with APEL, which is used to track the use of EOSC resources.
The EOSC-Hub (Integrating and Managing Services for the European Open Science Cloud) project began on January 1, 2018. By mobilizing e-infrastructures covering more than 300 resource locations worldwide and 18 pan-European research infrastructures, the EOSC-Hub project represents a key milestone in the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud. The mission of the EOSC-hub project is to provide high quality, easy and open access to EGI, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other research infrastructures to user communities from 50 countries and a range of scientific disciplines. SRCE is a partner in the project, continuing its long-standing involvement and ensuring the connection of croatian e-infrastructure to pan-european e-infrastructure.
