Basic steps to make VM images more manageable
One of the goals of EGI mini project CloudCaps is to create howtos for user communities about image creation and avoiding common pitfalls. We are also very keen on performance optimization, which is why we looked into shrinking sizes of VM images before distributing them.
Managing authentication and authorization for virtual communities with a distributed service infrastructure
To enable easy access to the external services hosted by the project partners, WeNMR offers a Single Sign On solution to its Virtual Research Community users. To this end, a custom solution integrated into the Drupal content management system was developed for the Virtual Research Community gateway.
