Specifications of data ingestion and use in INDIGO - D2.7

Following the analysis presented in the previous deliverable D2.11 on the data life cycle for the different case studies proposed by the research communities, and the definition of the Data Ingestion stage, this report presents the context details and parameters required for the specifications of the INDIGO ingestion integrity test. Introducing the “Arbor” model promoting the FAIR+R rules for this data ingestion, the report also explores how INDIGO-DataCloud solutions can support the different stages in the data life cycle, including re-use and preservation.

Initial Specifications of data ingestion in INDIGO - D2.11

This document  reports the  first results of  the enquiring activities for the research  ommunities participating in the INDIGO-DataCloud project in relation to data ingestion. It is  built on the experience with the Case Studies being integrated with INDIGO solutions, already presented in deliverables D2.1 and   D2.4, after reviewing the state-of-the-art recommendations on data management, and in particular those  being  analyzed in the RDA (Research Data Alliance) context. Following  these recommendations, a first detailed Case Study has been examined,  including the requirements discussed under tasks T2.1  and T2.2, confronting them to  the possibilities offered by INDIGO  solutions, to provide a reference for defining adequate strategies for data ingestion, to be confirmed in the forthcoming deliverable D2.7.

INDIGO architectural foundations published on arXiv

The document "INDIGO-Datacloud: foundations and architectural description of a Platform as a Service oriented to scientific computing" has been published on arXiv and is available at this link.


The main purpose of this report is to confirm, from the point of view of the Research Communities that their initial requirements, analysed in WP2 and reported in Deliverable D2.1, have been taken into account in the overall software design, proposed by the JRA work packages for INDIGO solutions.

Using an Agile framework, experts from each Research Community, so called “Champions”, have revised the corresponding case studies, and are able to confront their initial requirements with the solutions proposed. Moreover, using proposed methodology and tools they can also further provide an extended list of requirements, based on the evolving experience and potential interest of the communities.
