Whitepaper on Fenix Service Provisioning and Lessons Learned in ICEI
The Interactive Computing E-Infrastructure for the Human Brain Project (ICEI), a “sister project” of the Human Brain Project (HBP) that is building an initial version of the Fenix Research Infrastructure under the umbrella of the HBP, has published the whitepaper “Fenix e-infrastructure service provisioning – lessons learned”. After the ICEI project was started five years ago, the ICEI consortium consisting of the five European supercomputing centres – BSC (Spain), CEA (France), CINECA (Italy), CSCS (Switzerland), and JSC (Germany) – and Fenix partners want to share their experience in providing e-infrastructure services to European researchers from different research areas. The whitepaper, which is addressed to e-infrastructure service providers or similar initiatives, provides a summary of current Fenix services, offers statistics on infrastructure users, and concludes with an overview of lessons learned based on the feedback collected from Fenix users as well as the experiences gained and the know-how obtained.
