The COARE Data Archiving service provides a highly-available repository which aims to accommodate various storage requirements of COARE users and to store data on a short-term or long-term basis. This service is implemented through the COARE Data Catalog and Tape Backup.

The Data Catalog is a web-based research repository that contains a collection of datasets produced from various research findings using the COARE's resources, as well as other bodies of data gathered and contributed by Data Owners. The repository is openly accessible to the public, and the datasets could be integral for academics, data analysts, scientists, and other scholars in the scientific community.


The COARE Data Catalog is built with OpenStack Swift as its back-end storage and CKAN as its datasets metadata manager.

While there is no default allocation set for the COARE Data Archiving service, provision of resources will be based on the COARE Team's evaluation and recommendation.
