B2SAFE is a robust, safe and highly available service which allows community and departmental repositories to implement data management policies on their research data across different geographical and administrative domains in a trustworthy manner. B2SAFE is a way to distribute and store large volumes of data for a long-term to those sites which are providing powerful data processing, analysis and data access facilities. The service operates on the domain of registered data: data objects are made referenceable via globally unique persistent identifiers (PID) which are managed by the corresponding administrative domains.
A distributed service for storing, managing and accessing persistent identifiers (PIDs) and essential metadata (PID records) as well as managing PID namespaces. The implementation of the service relies on the DONA/Handle persistent identifier solution. B2HANDLE can be used by middleware applications, end-user tools and other services to reliably identify data objects over longer timespans and through changes in object location or ownership.
A secure and trusted data exchange service for researchers and scientists to keep their research data synchronized and up-to-date and to exchange with other researchers. An ideal solution to store and exchange data with colleagues and team members, synchronise multiple versions of data and ensure automatic desktop synchronisation of large files.
B2SHARE is a user-friendly, reliable and trustworthy way for researchers, scientific communities and citizen scientists to store and share small-scale research data from diverse contexts. B2SHARE is a solution that facilitates research data storage, guarantees long-term persistence of data and allows data, results or ideas to be shared worldwide. Standard. For the individual researchers who do not have adequate facilities for storing, preserving and sharing data, B2SHARE Service is a customer-facing service which provides a safe repository for scientific data and an easy way to share it in the research community.
B2ACCESS is the EUDAT federated cross-infrastructure authorisation and authentication framework for user identification and community-defined access control enforcement. B2ACCESS allows users to authenticate themselves using a variety of credentials. B2ACCESS service is a customer facing service that provides federated access to the services in a trusted way.
C-SCALE Project developed an easier mechanism in just one-step, to discover relevant scientific data in satellite data archives across Europe and across the C-SCALE Data Federation. This service will support scientists, researchers and any other user communities, to quickly find the data they were looking for in the huge offer of Copernicus Data.
The Metadata Query Service (MQS) implements a STAC API to accept and answer STAC-compliant queries for products available across the C-SCALE Data Federation. It is aware of individual sources of data in the federation, and can forward incoming queries to those sources (sites), receive their responses and combine them into a compound response, which is then returned to the user, indicating the availability of products matching their query across the federation.MQS can also be made aware of different sites’ focus in terms of geographical area, acquiring and retention policy, product type selection and similar factors, so that incoming queries do not need to be redistributed to all sites but rather only to those who are likely to possess matching products.More specifically, the use pattern for the MQS is as follows:The user posts a STAC query at the MQSMQS parses the query and checks for its spatial, temporal or typical criteriaMQS checks the Grid Configuration and Operation Database (GOCDB) for available sites, and rules out sites that declare other focus, completely different from the query’s criteria.MQS submits copies or translations of the incoming query to sites that have not been ruled out.MQS receives responses from the sites and combines them into a compound response.MQS returns the compound response to the user.The user thereby obtains an overview of the availability of products matching their query across the C-SCALE data federation.
The C-SCALE Compute Federation provides uniform access to a federation of computing and data providers to execute Copernicus and Earth Observation (EO) workloads. The federation offers interfaces to access to two types of resources and associated storage solutions. Cloud interface: access to Cloud resources of the federation as IaaS and container platforms (Kubernetes) with federated orchestration for the deployment of applications and platforms across providers in a seamless way; HPC and HTC interface: lightweight, federated and uniform access-integration layer to HPC and HTC systems. How to access Access is controlled via authentication and authorisation solutions compatible with the EOSC AAI. Access is granted based on membership of users to one of the supported communities. Each community has a manager or Principal Investigator (PI) that is responsible for (i) managing the members of the community, and (ii) the usage of the resources made available via C-SCALE services. Communities will be created after requests for the service. Technical requirements for access: Access requires a valid account in one of the AAI systems of C-SCALE: Check-in for the cloud resources and SRAM for the HPC/HTC resources. Access to HPC and HTC resources requires a ssh public key.
With this service a user can easily deploy a workflow that produces a monthly high resolution, seasonal, ensemble drought forecast for a river basin of interest. Detailed description of the functionality Download the necessary input data for the user-specified region of interest. Input data are the ERA5 reanalysis and the SEAS5 seasonal forecast. Prepare the data for ingestion into the WFLOW hydrological model. Produce a 50 member ensemble forecast using WFLOW. Visualise the forecast in an interactive Jupyter Notebook displaying river discharge timeseries and interactive maps of soil moisture anomalies (in development). The service is currently available for deployment on C-SCALE’s HTC infrastructure. Access is to (HTC) resources to deploy this service is achieved via SRAM.
