We are presently, going through redevelopment of the site, the evaluation of new techniques for service delivery such as using Docker for containers and updating multiple services throughout the sites.
The development of the programme presented at CHEP on automation and different approaches to delivering HEP related Grid services is underway. An evaluation of container based solutions for service deployment will be presented at the next GridPP collaboration meeting later this month. Other evaluation work on using Software Defined Networking hasn't progressed as quickly as we would have like but is still underway.

On other news, Gareth Roy is taking over as the Scotgrid Technical Co-ordinator this month. Mark is off for adventures with the Urban Studies Big Data Group within Glasgow University.And as Dr Who can do it, we can do. Co-ordinator Past, Present and Future all appear in the same place at the same time.
Will the fabric of Scotgrid be the same again?
Very much so.
