OCRE will make selected commercial digital services an integral part of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), ensuring compliance with EOSC requirements and visibility in the EOSC-hub Service Catalogue.
OCRE will encourage more EO Services on the Copernicus DIAS, the Data and Information Access Services providing centralised access to Copernicus data and information, as well as to processing tools, enabling the research community to find and consume these services.
Commodity-type commercial digital services necessary for interdisciplinary research activities. Such services include:
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS): the provision of compute, storage, network and related services and/or a platform allowing customers to develop, run, and manage applications, as a public cloud service.
Software as a Service (SaaS), on-demand software offerings: a software licensing and delivery model in which software is used by the customer on a subscription basis and is hosted by the supplier as a public cloud service, in the areas of file storage (sync and share), online collaboration, simulation and virtualisation tools.
Data collected by the European Earth Observation programme, Copernicus, made available through a number of Data and Information Access Services (DIAS). Data collected by the European Earth Observation programme, Copernicus, will be made available through a number of Data and Information Access Services (DIAS).
The services provided by these companies range from interactive data analytics, to specific information. OCRE will enable the commercial service providers who create their front-office services on top of these back-end DIASes, to offer their services to the research community.
