Relate to:

Approach and Plan

  1. Set up GCP project for experiments.
  2. Evaluate the effort needed to adapt Kaapana to GKE.
  3. Start working on adaptation.

Progress and Next Steps

  1. GCP project set up.
  2. Jonas started work on this (remotely!)
  3. Unfortunately, other meetings of Jonas prevented Andrey and Jonas to meet to discuss this.
  4. But: updates from the project channel from Jonas: “I think I have what I need right now 🙂 I made some progress yesterday and have a connected cluster running in GCP. Now I need to make a couple adjustments regarding the storage claims within our project (that was expected). I’ll write you as soon as I have a first version to try on GCP” and “I still have to change ~ 80% of our storage handling (we should do this anyway)”.
  5. Andrey and Klaus discussed the strategy for integration with GCP Healthcare (see notes in the umbrella project) and identified initial steps.
