Paper Abstract

User support and operations of a large observatory rely on a well defined infrastructure, which is based on different policies, procedures, and tools. April 1, 2009 marked the 10th anniversary of VLT operations. Our VLT operations and data-flow schemas have proven to be reliable and efficient and users feedback continues to be positive. Thanks to eleven years of day-to-day experience and users feedback, we have evaluated new possible ways forward to make operations even smoother and more efficient. Here, I will review recent developments and new services offered to our VLT users community.
