Maximise the value of your large datasets and make them accessible while optimising the data storage cost



Manage large datasets without worrying of your data storage space limitations

Exploit our services to store your data or use our APIs to manage and access the other data stored in the data lake. Our Authentication, Authorization and Identity management (AAI) mechanism ensures a level of security that meets the ESFRIs policies.

Process the data from several sources

Choose how to process the data, from sites accessible through Grid interfaces, to Cloud resources and High-Performance Computers (HPC).

Use the FAIR data management components

The ESCAPE DIOS service consists of various components that could also be used as stand-alone services, such as: storage, orchestration, data transfer, AAI, monitoring services and much more!


What is the Data Infrastructure for Open Science (DIOS)?

The ESCAPE DIOS is a federated data infrastructure that follows the FAIR data principles and provides a flexible and robust data lake to efficiently manage large volumes of data in terms of storage, security, safety and transfer, with the basic orchestration machinery to make them accessible and be combined with high quality data from different communities. 



          What can you do?

What can you do?

  • Handle large data sets and continuously stream them to the datalake for permanent storage and access, while keeping free space in your data source centre.
  • Store all your structured and unstructured data at any scale.
  • Process data and perform complex calculations at high speeds by accessing High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources. 
  • Browse and download data from the data lake.
  • Schedule and execute automated remote files transfers.
  • Organise, manage, and access large volumes of scientific data using customisable policies.




How does it work?

  • Store your data or browse and download existing data in the lake data
  • Tranfer the data that you need
  • Orchestrate the data in the data lake
  • Access HPC resource for data processing.
