Grid-Ireland CA closure and migration
October 24 2012 10:45:03. Posted by David OCallaghan
In the Grid-Ireland email notice of closure of 27 July 2012, Grid-Ireland CA certificate users were reassured that the OpsCentre would explore a number of options to ensure continuity of this service. Fortunately HEAnet have generously offered to provide both e-Science Server and e-Science Personal Certificates through the IGTF-accredited Terena Certificate Service. This will allow the Grid-Ireland CA to close at the end of 2012 along with the rest of the Grid-Ireland Operations Centre at TCD.
Grid-Ireland decommissioning is under way
October 22 2012 15:01:09. Posted by David OCallaghan
There is a need to decommission gracefully to allow time for the existing Irish grid community to migrate to alternatives, to carefully wind down Irish grid support for international VOs, and to decommission the Irish grid resource centres (which are remotely managed by the operations centre).
Grid-Ireland Operations Centre Closure on 31 December 2012
July 27 2012 13:00:03. Posted by David OCallaghan
As a result of a government funding decision in mid-2011 concerning the Grid-Ireland Operations Centre at TCD, strenuously appealed, the Operations Centre's host department has suffered large financial losses, and has now decided that these cannot be sustained beyond the end of 2012.
We would like to thank all of our users, site administrators, supporters and staff for contributing to Grid-Ireland's successes over the years.
