Interactive and agile/responsive sharing mesh of storage, data and applications for EOSC

Description du projet

Un système open source intégré pour stimuler les collaborations dans les services de stockage sur le cloud

Les services de stockage destinés à la synchronisation et au partage de données sur le cloud constituent un élément indispensable de la routine quotidienne en termes de flux de travail, en permettant aux groupes de recherche, aux scientifiques et aux ingénieurs de partager, de transférer et de synchroniser les données d’une façon simple mais efficace. Ces services sont exploités et financés par les principaux fournisseurs d’infrastructures électroniques, tels que les réseaux nationaux de recherche et d’éducation et les grandes institutions de recherche. Ces services restent toutefois largement déconnectés les uns des autres. Le projet CS3MESH4EOSC, financé par l’UE, intégrera l’écosystème d’applications existant en privilégiant des interfaces et des protocoles de programmation d’applications indépendantes des fournisseurs. Une infrastructure connectée de pointe, open source, offrira aux chercheurs un accès plus large aux services et stimulera la recherche collaborative.

Objectif

In recent years Cloud Services for Synchronization and Sharing (CS3) have been widely deployed in the research and educational space. The services are operated and funded by major e-infrastructure providers, NRENs (National Research & Education Networks) and major research institutions. The CS3 services have become successful on a national level at the scale of individual institutions and started becoming an indispensable element of daily workflows for hundreds of thousands of users including researchers, students, scientists and engineers. The community deploying these services grew bottom up and found its home at the yearly CS3 conferences (cs3.cern.ch). However, these services remain largely disconnected, and they are developed and deployed in isolation from each other. At the current state of maturity and community uptake however, combining these various systems and services would allow to boost open-science by presenting a joint, coordinated service to the users in the research and education space on a pan-European level. CS3MESH4EOSC implements a service for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) with a built-in sustainability model using the on-premise service delivery by utilizing existing key technology enablers: Open Cloud Mesh (OCM) standardized protocol and EduGAIN service. It consolidates and integrates the existing application ecosystem by promoting vendor-neutral APIs and protocols following the open-source strategy for delivering services -- a platform for a thriving application ecosystem in EOSC. CS3MESH4EOSC empowers service providers in delivering state-of-the-art, connected infrastructure to boost effective scientific collaboration across the entire federation and data sharing according to FAIR principles.The project delivers the core of a scientific and educational infrastructure for cloud storage services in Europe through a lightweight federation of existing sync/share services and integration with multidisciplinary application workflows.
