Data Management Facilities
gCube Data Management facilities are dedicated to provide its users with a rich array of services for the management of data in the context of the whole infrastructure. This page collects the specifications related to the three key-areas of the facilities.
Data Access and Storage
Accessing data sources for retrieval or storage purposes is a fundamental requirement for a wide range of system processes, including indexing, transfer, transformation, and presentation. Equally, it is a main driver for clients that interface the resources managed by the system or accessible through facilities available within the system. For further information, please see this article.
The implementation of a reliable data transfer mechanisms between the nodes of a gCube-based Hybrid Data Infrastructure is one of the main objectives when dealing with large set of multi-type datasets distributed across different repositories. For further information, please see this article.
Data Assessment, Harmonisation, and Certification Facilities
gCube is a software suite equipped with a rich array of services capable to interface with data sources having different characteristics both in terms of data types these sources offers (e.g. from document data, to statistical, biodiversity, and semantic data - see Data Access and Storage Facilities) and the heterogeneity of data belonging to the same type.
