D4Science hosts +150 Virtual Research Environments to serve the biological, ecological, environmental, social mining, culture heritage, and statistical communities world-wide.
Resource CatalogueLearn More
The catalogue contains a wealth of resources resulting from several activities, projects and communities including Blue-Cloud (https://blue-cloud.org/), i-Marine (www.i-marine.eu), SoBigData Research Infrastructure (www.sobigdata.eu). All the products are accompanied with rich descriptions capturing general attributes, e.g. title and creator(s), as well as usage policies and licences.
These services can be exploited both via web based graphical user interfaces and web based protocols for programmatic access, e.g. REST-API. OAI-PMH, CSW, WFS, SDMX. This offering nicely complements specific and community-specific applications.
Exploitation ModelsLearn More
Three exploitation models are available to meet your needs:
- as user, you can securely preserve, access from anywhere, and confidentially share your data and join one of the available and free-to-access VRE to exploit one or more of the existing applications;
- as group of users, you can create your own virtual environment and add the applications you need;
- as community, you can manage your communities and offer to them a set of virtual environments.
D4Science offers a number of services and virtual research environments for users willing to acquire concrete understanding of the major features and capabilities.
