Milestone

The platform requirements review has been superseded by full implementation for services on both Unix and Windows systems. 


The OBOE system now consists of at least nine machines:

  1. Unix physical machines (Vibrant, Bonnacon, Cockatrice, Karakal)
  2. Unix virtual machines (Goblin, Voonith)
  3. Windows physical machines (Gecko)
  4. Windows virtual machines (Nyogtha, Syncerus)

 

We have in principle agreements and a free allocation of startup CPU hours to run services on the OSC clusters and on NGS resources.

A simple service API is now in place that will allow any authenticated Windows or Unix machine, located anywhere on the internet, to run OBOE services.
