Today, May 8, 2017, the Department of Science and Technology– Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST–ASTI) is proud to announce the launch of the Computing and Archiving Research Environment (CoARE) facility’s premiere Data Catalog website to the public! The website could be easily accessed through http://asti.dost.gov.ph/coare/data.
Through this exciting launch, DOST-ASTI will finally have a gateway for all the archived information in the CoARE facility. For the past three years, CoARE has been offering free services to the public that have been essentially utilized by researchers. These services include the HPC, Data Storage and Science Cloud. The HPC is used for processing large amounts of data and running high-level applications, the Data Storage is a massive repository where users could digitally store and access important data, and the Science Cloud provides virtual machines to users through a cloud-based system. Now on top of these three, the CoARE facility is enthused to offer its fourth service, the Data Catalog website–which is a combination of the datasets gathered from the first three services of CoARE. The said website will contain a variety of data from the fields of Genomics, Environmental Science, Meteorology, Weather and Climate Modelling, and Disaster Management gathered from the facility– which could be beneficial for the members of the academe and the science research community.
The CoARE team is pleased to let the public know that access to the Data Catalog is available for everyone, and assistance in the utilization of the datasets will be provided to those who could use them for research purposes. Through the Data Catalog website, CoARE aims to cultivate partnerships with other scholars and intensify research developments in the domain applications above or in new and related fields.
