I'd like to kick off another end user feature request discussion (previous threads have included user interface changes, access to data files and metadata models/templates).
This one I'd like to discuss access to/from cloud storage services in Dataverse.
The specific use case I had in mind was one where scientists/researchers use a cloud storage service as a "workbench" for collaborative (also: real time, versioned/unversioned, prepublication) data analysis.
The types of interactions that I might envision between these services/workbenches and Dataverse include:
- push/freeze: from the cloud service to a study.
- pull/unfreeze: from dataverse to a workbench
I'm happy to add more description of these interactions for any other of the 100 Dataverse "users" on this forum who don't get what I'm talking about. I feel it more likely that a subset (of non-Dataverse developers) know exactly what I'm talking about, and hopefully will jump in to flesh this out.
PS: to remind I'm coming at this from the "astronomers" perspective. some astronomer developers have started building such services. here is a list:
