Cloud Infrastructure

 

This DRS project provides external specialist technical support for the essential regular software updates to the Eleanor computational cloud service. The underlying software which provides the Eleanor services is OpenStack, an industry standard open-source cloud computing software platform.  Due to its open source nature the Open Stack system typically requires a regular 6 monthly update cycle to maintain critical functionality and also for critical security updates. 

 

The OpenStack infrastructure also now forms a critical area of shared technology with the developing EIDF infrastructure. 

 

Given the complexity of the OpenStack modules it is more efficient to source this work externally than to try to maintain highly specific internal expertise which will only be required on a semi-annual basis.
