  • Ophidia: is a research project on big data analytics for eScience. It provides a framework for parallel I/O and data analysis, an array-based storage model and a hierarchical storage organization to partition and distribute multidimensional scientific datasets.
  • B2Handle: the b2handle Python library is a client library for interaction with a Handle System server. The role of B2Handle is to enable PID-provenance support
  • B2DROP and B2SHARE: are EUDAT services that provide a flexible and open data sharing. ECAS users will be able to access/share data and notebooks.
  • EOSCHUB AAI: besides LDAP, B2ACCESS, EGI Check in and Indigo IAM can be used to login to the ECASLab.
