Whiteboard summaries

Decisions Made

  • SSI comes under eLabs
  • Servers need to be actively upgraded to a maintained version of the operating system. Need a plan!
    • Background: Open PHACTS/Ondex2 server is not being managed by IT services as it has a OS that is over 2 years old and is now deprecated from the point of view of security and package updates. Alasdair spent a day trying to update the PHP to be able to decode JSON

New Actions

  • Carole/Alasdair: (2012-06-22) Speak to Gerhard about KNIME
  • Katy/Stuart: (2012-06-22) Organise who will attend the Freiberg meeting 1 August
  • Shoaib: (2012-06-22) Oversee drawing up of a list of servers that are centrally managed and have old/deprecated operating systems or are not actively being updated. Issues around production servers and research/development servers.
  • Shoaib/Alasdair/Christian: (2012-06-22) Identify needs for the Open PHACTS server
  • Shoaib: (2012-06-22) Talk with Duncan about publishing presentations on the MyGrid website
