PULSAR: the first XDC software release is out

The eXtreme-DataCloud project has announced the general availability of its first public software release, code-named Pulsar.

This release comes after an initial phase of requirement gathering which involved several European scientific collaborations in areas as diverse as life sciences, astrophysics, high-energy physics, photon science and clinical research.

This resulted in the development of new or improved functionalities of a set of software components, some of them already available in the European Open Science Cloud ecosystem, addressing important topics like federation of storage resources, smart caching solutions, policy driven data management based on Quality of Service, data lifecycle management, optimised data management based on access patterns.

If you are interested in testing some of the products please contact our colleague Baptiste Grenier, we will be pleased to support you and hear your feedback about usage in your environment.
