Letter of intent to become a new FIWARE Lab node

"The FIWARE Foundation, e.V. (hereinafter “FIWARE”) representing the FIWARE Community is very happy to receive your intention to be part of the FIWARE Lab ecosystem. FIWARE as such is acting to ensure SLA levels of FIWARE Lab for the benefit of all its worldwide users.
As a new applicant to FIWARE Lab, several activities are required from your side in order to configure the node and put it in the FIWARE Lab ecosystem. These activities are described in the FIWARE Lab Operation Guide, section “Steps to become a New FIWARE Lab node”. Please take a look to it.
Although, FIWARE Lab is an environment where experimental activities are carried out, we are requesting you to offer a certain level of SLA in terms of resolution of users’ problems while keeping the FIWARE Lab operations up and running with a SLA of the 95% of operational time. It means that issues should be solved in an average of 2 working days.
Accordingly, in the event that the node would not be operational for more than 4 weeks, the management of the FIWARE Lab might unilaterally disconnect the node without possibility to challenge the decision. The operations of the node will be evaluated according to the automatic tests performed by the FI-Health service of the FIWARE Lab as well as the resolution of issues in of 2 working days. Please note that each issue is automatically associated with a ticket in our JIRA instance, so proper tracking and monitoring can be performed.
Additionally, we inform you that FIWARE is the owner of the data and therefore responsible for protecting this information. Consequently, FIWARE is the data controller and you can access for notification to Franklinstrasse 13A, 10587 Berlin. We advise you that FIWARE complies with the current German legislation related to Personal Data Protection, Users' Privacy and the Secrecy and Security of Personal Data, as established in the Federal Data Protection Act in the version promulgated on 14 January 2003 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 66, BGBl. I S. 66 in German), as most recently amended by Article 7 of the Act of 30 June 2017 (Federal Law Gazette I p. 2097, BGBl. I S. 2097 in German).
Finally, it is worth to notice that if an organisation plans to discontinue the operations of a node belonging to FIWARE Lab, a set of activities must be set in order that the FIWARE Lab management can offer a soft transition to the FIWARE users active in the discontinued node. These activities are described in the FIWARE Lab Operation Guide in the section “Steps to discontinue a FIWARE Lab node”. It is mandatory that to announce the start of the disconnection process 1 Month before discontinuing the FIWARE Lab node itself.
To be consistent with the above, we need a written commitment about the request of the ...................................................................................... node. This way, we would then be able to activate the FIWARE Lab support team to provide assistance in the required activities to federate your node."
