 Kubernetes Commons transition 
  • All of PDAC will transfer into Kubernetes Commons, anticipated in October
  • Gated on NCSA resource availability for setting up namespace, moving hardware, etc.
  • Plans for transition from PDAC to Kubernetes Commons to be discussed by Michelle Butler and Fritz Mueller at LSST2018; will be documented in Confluence page
  • Also should document current and near-future PDAC state/design

  • In the longer term, a separate controlled, certified Kubernetes environment will be exposed to the Internet for demos.
  • Should consider whether this can be combined with PDAC, as it serves many of the same purposes.

  • /scratch open to root for next two weeks to support Firefly for review demo
  • Snapshots turned on during that time to avoid data loss

  • Might be configured in Dockerfile; might also be configured in Kubernetes
  • IPAC will investigate
