  • Service name: Data platform central services


EGI provides an Open Data Platform (ODP) to enable users to access federated storage services, to discover, store and download data distributed in the EGI federated infrastructure.

The Open Data Platform is composed by distributed and central services. Central services provide the single entry point for the users to perform actions on the datasets stored by the EGI Service providers. The central services interoperate with the distributed components of the platform, that are deployed on the individual storage systems participating to the platform.

The Central ODP service is a gateway for users to ODP. It is responsible for authentication and authorization of users and to redirect the user to the relevant data provider.
