Our next SCiMMA public talk will be given by John Swinbank and Klaus Kliffen. Please forward to anyone who might be interested in this approach to a very important topic!
ESCAPE and ESAP: Building common infrastructure for data intensive research
The ESCAPE Project brings together the European astronomy and particle physics communities with the goal of building a common infrastructure in support of data- and software-intensive research. The project is building a “data lake” for storage and management of exabyte scale datasets, curating an open-source scientific software repository, and fostering close links with the virtual observatory and citizen science projects. Layered on top of these is ESAP, our science analysis platform “toolkit”, provides a common set of abstractions and components that enable individual research infrastructures to provide access to the range ESCAPE services in a way that is customized to the needs of their particular user communities.
In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the work that is being done across the ESCAPE Project, and then zoom in to focus on the goals, design considerations, and lessons learned from the ESAP platform.
