Integration Objectives and Scope This OSG Consortium Activity integrates the middleware services, develops processes for and performs validation and certification in advance of OSG deployments, devises best practices for configuration management, establishes a framework for releases, and coordinates the OSG Integration Testbed (ITB). This include work in the Interoperability between OSG and EGEE.
OSG Integration Project The OSG IntegrationProject delivers the core ValidationTestbed (VTB) for first pass systems-level integration and validation of VDT services and tools. The porgram of work and effort reports are described in IntegrationProject.
OSG Sites Coordination has been organized to help OSG site administrators with their deployments. See: SiteCoordination.
NewOSGServices describes the process for integrating new services into the OSG. An ITB release is defined as a set of services provided by a site (gatekeeper services running on a computing element), VO-specific services provided by that VO, such as a VOMS server), or another resource provider, such as group providing a monitoring or discovery service that may be used in the context of the ITB. Client packages and libraries for use with an ITB release are provided by VDT releases - either the VDT Client distribution or sub-sets as needed by the client application or user.
