|Release 2.1 features summarized from the Use Cases|
Release 2 is the Managed Instrument Network release. The release builds on the core data management and delivery services developed in Release 1. This release develops integrated support for OOI Marine Observatory instrument providers and operators. Secondary themes are support for operational management of the CI infrastructure and network, integration of computational tools for data manipulation, analysis, and visualization, and early prototyping of release 3 capabilities.
The target communities for Release 2 are OOI operators, OOI scientists, and select early adopters in the extended OOI user community. Release 2 will be the basis for supporting initial marine operations and deployments.
This release will be the first to be deployed at multiple sites.
The R2.1 point release completes a number of Release 2 features that were not fully available as of the Release 2.0 milestone. It adds full UI support for the Release 2 features, and completes capabilities that either had not been fully implemented, or require adjustments based on stakeholder feedback.
A very few features are not fully available in Release 2.1. These features are identified with the following codes after their entry:
- : limited capability
- : resolution pending
Note that many features will be available with this release but can not be fully configured or demonstrated immediately upon completion of the release, as they require the completion of system designs and/or implementations on the part of the Marine IOs. Full operation of these features will commence once the marine systems are sufficiently complete to enable integration with the Integrated Observatory.
The Release 2.0 Use Case Features Summary reflects the feature availability as of the completion of the 2.0 (alpha) release of the product.
