Access key scientific datasets in a scalable way

DataHub allows you to enable simple and scalable access to distributed data for computation, and to publish a dataset and make it available to a specific community, or worldwide, across federated sites.



DataHub allows you to bring data close to  computing to exploit it efficiently, and to publish a dataset and make it available to a specific community, or worldwide, across federated sites. DataHub is based on the Onedata technology.

You can access the service for evaluation using the PLAYGROUND shared space, or request support to publish your data and have dedicated storage assigned.
