PHIDIAS: Boosting the use of cloud services for marine data management, services and processing

Description and scope of the Project

Phidias HPC is aimed at developing a consolidated and shared HPC and Data service by building on pre-existing and emerging infrastructure in order to create a federation of “user to infrastructure” services.

To achieve its purpose and to gain a comprehensive picture of the European infrastructure landscape, three data area tests will develop and provide new services to discover, manage and process spatial and environmental data produced by research communities tackling scientific challenges such as atmospheric, marine and earth observation issues.

Webinar: How to improve the cloud services for marine data

Observing the ocean is challenging: missions at sea are costly, different scales of processes interact, and the conditions are constantly changing, which is why scientists say that “a measurement not made today is lost forever”. For these reasons, it is fundamental to properly store both the data and metadata, so that their access can be guaranteed for the widest community, in line with the FAIR principles: Findable, Accessible, Inter-operable and Reusable.

The webinar aims to introduce the Phidias HPC initiative, in collaboration with the Blue-Cloud project, to the European HPC and Research community, specifically in the Ocean data test case, to improve the use of

  1. Cloud services for marine data management,
  2. Data services to the user in a FAIR perspective, and
  3. Data processing on demand.

These objectives will be pursued in coherence with the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS).
