gCube Core Facilities
gCube Core facilities are dedicated to provide its users with a range of services for the operation and management of the whole infrastructure. This page collects the specifications related to the three key-areas of the facilities.
Data e-Infrastructure Management Facilities
Data e-Infrastructure management facilities promote the optimal exploitation of the resources available in the e-Infrastructure and the integration of technology external to the e-Infrastructure. They insulate as much as possible the management of the e-Infrastructure from the data and the data management services that are hosted in or accessible through the infrastructure itself. See this article for detailed information.
Data e-Infrastructure Policy-oriented Security Facilities
The goal of Data e-Infrastructure Policy-oriented Security Facilities is to protect gCube infrastructure resources from unauthorized accesses. The facilities, composing a complete security module, are built on SOA3. See this article for detailed information.
Workflow Management Facilities
The gCube system exposes its Workflow Management capabilities through its PE2ng component, a process execution engine. PE2ng is a system to manage the execution of software elements in a distributed infrastructure under the coordination of a composite plan that defines the data dependencies among its actors. See this article for detailed information.
Data Consumption facilities are dedicated to users needing services for the exploitation of data ranging from retrieval to processing and visualisation.
Data Management facilities are dedicated to users needing services for the management of data in the context of the whole infrastructure.
APIs for Data Management and Consumption, to provide programmatic access to the Infrastructure's resources.
