Research Sharing, Analysis, Collaboration, and Management

ScienceMesh provides the research environment in which to:

Share files with researchers on other mesh nodes.

Collaborate with researchers through rich applications (e.g. notebook and document editing).

Manage your research data, make it FAIR and publish it on digital repositories (e.g. InvenioRDM/Zenodo)

Easily start point-to-point data transfers of large data files (using RClone or FTS/Rucio).

Join a dynamic world wide community where you can easily collaborate and exchange research objects and documents.

Federated sharing of data across different sync-and-share services.

Federated use of applications such as collaborative document editing, data archiving, and data publishing.

Fast transfer of large datasets from one site to another.

Remote data analysis through sync-and-share services.


Reva is the foundation software for the ScienceMesh platform.

Reva is an inter-operability platform originally developed at CERN to bridge the gap between cloud storages and application providers. Reva is used every day at CERN to power the CERNBox service.

OCM is the mechanism to stablish trust between sites.

OpenCloudMesh connects globally interconnected mesh of research cloud without sacrificing any of the advantages in privacy, control and security an on-premises cloud provides.

CS3APIs provide a common interface for applications and storage to communicate.

It is the cornerstone of the application ecosystem which sits on top of the ScienceMesh.
