EUDAT and PRACE are joining forces to help research communities gain access to high quality managed e-Infrastructures whose resources can be connected together to enable cross-utilization use cases and make them accessible without any technical barrier.
The capability to couple data and compute resources together is considered one of the key factors to accelerate scientific innovation and advance research frontiers. This collaboration has already achieved relevant results as five cross-projects, ranging from different scientific fields, have been granted to use approximately 400TB of storage space at different EUDAT centres. These projects, granted during the last PRACE DECI Call 13, are now using EUDAT storage resources to secure the results of their computational experiments and can build on this result to create a long-term repository of valuable data for further elaboration and dissemination.
Thanks to this collaborative effort, the PRACE DECI Call 14 welcomes new joint project proposals requiring to couple PRACE Tier-1 resources with services for long-term data management and preservation. EUDAT offers around 1 PB (1000 TiB) of storage capacity, approximately 150 TiB per project awarded at one or more of its sites distributed across Europe for at least 24 months after the end of the DECI program grant, free of charge.
