Continuing to develop the conceptual interoperation architecture agreed with EPCC/EIDF into more detailed architecture and service design, and appropriate implementations.
As part of the Data Driven Innovation programme(DDI), the University of Edinburgh is creating a large scale data and analytics infrastructure (EIDF) to provision storage and compute for the DDI related activities in UoE and beyond.
A large number of researchers at UoE, but not all, will be engaged in DDI related projects. Many of these researchers will also be engaged in non-DDI projects.
Thus the UoE IT infrastructures related to DDI and non-DDI activities need to interoperate as seamlessly as possible to support researchers across the totality of the University and the totality of researchers work.
EPCC and RSS have already been involved in defining, at a high level, how architectural interoperation might be taken forward. There is some commonality of systems (eg. Open Stack) but not complete homogeneity. There will also be interface caches (for staging data) and additional network routers required to allow the large scale systems to interoperate.
