XCI-543 Evaluate IRODS Sub-task Proposed  
XSEDE Priority: -

Public activity link:
Use Cases:
DA-02: Data preparation, DM-05: Manually create metadata for a data object, DM-06: Run a researcher-supplied tool to generate metadata for data objects, DM-07: Automatically extract metadata from data objects, DM-08: Store metadata for later use, DM-09: Search metadata for specific objects of interest, DM-10: Add metadata search features to an application
Track status in meeting: yes


Use cases DA-02, DM-05, DM-06, DM-07, DM-08, DM-09, and DM-10 all require XSEDE to provide a metadata management function that can be used by researchers to create, store, and search metadata (descriptions of datasets and data objects) while working with scientific data. XSEDE does not currently offer such a function.

XSEDE prioritized the DA-2 Data Preparation use case which describes how users need tools for creating, sharing, and discovery metadata. This activity will identity metadata management tools, evaluate, select, and recommend the ones with the greatest ROI for XSEDE users. We will separately and independently launch activities to integrate each of the selected tools.


There are comments for XCI-245 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
