The operation of the PRACE distributed HPC infrastructure involves the coordination of a set of services which integrate the Tier-0 systems and a number of national Tier-1 systems, providing services for Tier-0, in a “single” pan-european HPC infrastructure. To ensure a seamless use of the PRACE distributed research infrastructure the PRACE common services must be available on all PRACE Tier-0 systems and the identified Tier-1 providing services for Tier-0. Through this common service provision the Tier-0 and Tier-1 systems are presented as one infrastructure which enables a smooth interoperation of Tier-0 and Tier-1 systems. The PRACE Service Catalog (Networking, Data, Compute, AAA and Security, User, Monitoring and Generic) defines a common set of services, based on the procedures for incident and change management those services are monitored and operated on a day by day basis.
