Data Processing and Analytics for Data-Centric Sciences
Candela L., Coro G., Lelii L., Panichi G., Pagano P.
The development of data processing and analytics tools is heavily driven by applications, which results in a great variety of software solutions, which often address specific needs. It is difficult to imagine a single solution that is universally suitable for all (or even most) application scenarios and contexts. This chapter describes the data analytics framework that has been designed and developed in the ENVRIplus project to be (a) suitable for serving the needs of researchers in several domains including environmental sciences, (b) open and extensible both with respect to the algorithms and methods it enables and the computing platforms it relies on to execute those algorithms and methods, and (c) open-science-friendly, i.e. it is capable of incorporating every algorithm and method integrated into the data processing framework as well as any computation resulting from the exploitation of integrated algorithms into a "research object" catering for citation, reproducibility, repeatability and provenance.Source: Towards Interoperable Research Infrastructures for Environmental and Earth Sciences.

Realizing virtual research environments for the agri-food community: the AGINFRA PLUS experience
Assante M., Boizet A., Candela L., Castelli D., Cirillo R., Coro G., Fernández E., Filter M., Frosini L., Georgiev T., Kakaletris G., Katsivelis P., Knapen R., Lelii L., Lokers R. M., Mangiacrapa F., Manouselis N., Pagano P., Panichi G., Penev L., Sinibaldi F.
The enhancements in IT solutions and the open science movement are injecting changes in the practices dealing with data collection, collation, processing, analytics, and publishing in all the domains, including agri-food. However, in implementing these changes one of the major issues faced by the agri-food researchers is the fragmentation of the "assets" to be exploited when performing research tasks, for example, data of interest are heterogeneous and scattered across several repositories, the tools modelers rely on are diverse and often make use of limited computing capacity, the publishing practices are various and rarely aim at making available the "whole story" including datasets, processes, and results. This paper presents the AGINFRA PLUS endeavor to overcome these limitations by providing researchers in three designated communities with Virtual Research Environments facilitating the use of the "assets" of interest and promote collaboration.Source: Concurrency and computation (Online) (2020). doi:10.1002/cpe.6087

Blue Cloud - D4.2: Blue Cloud VRE Common Facilities (Release 1)
Assante M., Candela L., Pagano P., Dell'Amico A., Coro G., Cirillo R., Frosini L., Lelii L., Lettere M., Mangiacrapa F., Panichi G., Sinibaldi F.
The Blue-Cloud project plans to pilot a cyber platform bringing together and providing access to multidisciplinary data from observations and models, analytical tools, and computing facilities essential to support research to understand better and manage the many aspects of ocean sustainability. To achieve this goal, Blue-Cloud is developing, deploying, and operating the Blue-Cloud platform whose architecture consists of two families of components: (a) the Blue Cloud Data Discovery and Access service component to serve federated discovery and access to 'blue data' infrastructures; and (b) the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment (VRE) component to provide a Blue Cloud VRE as a federation of computing platforms and analytical services. This deliverable presents the Blue Cloud Virtual Research Environment constituents by focusing on both new services and revised existing services that have been developed in the reporting period to serve the needs of the Blue Cloud community. In particular, this deliverable describes a total of 11 services and components. These services and components contribute functionalities to the Blue Cloud VRE Enabling Framework (Identity and Access Management, VRE Management), Collaborative framework (Workspace and Social Networking), Analytics Framework (Software and Algorithm Importer, Smart Executor), Publishing Framework (Catalogue Service) and improved support for RStudio, JupyterHub, ShinyProxy, and Docker Applications. The services are described below by reporting their design principles, architectures, and main features. The deliverable also describes the procedures and approaches governing services and components released by highlighting how Gitea (as Git hosting service), Jenkins (as automation server), and Maven (as project management and comprehension tool) are used to guarantee continuous integration processes. Services and components discussed in this deliverable contribute to 11 gCube open-source software system releases (from gCube 4.16 up to gCube 4.25.1) and are in the pipeline for the next ones. They have been used to develop and operate the Virtual Laboratories of the Blue Cloud gateway https://blue-cloud.d4science.org and its underlying infrastructure. At the time of this deliverable (November 2020), the gateway hosts a total of 8 VREs and VLabs, including five specifically conceived to support the co-development of some of the Blue-Cloud demonstrators (namely, the Aquaculture Atlas Generation for Demonstrator #5, the Blue-Cloud Lab for several demonstrators, the GRSF pre for Demonstrator #4, the Marine Environmental Indicators for Demonstrator #3, the Zoo-Phytoplankton EOV for Demonstrator #1). This gateway and its tools serve more than 400 users that (since January 2020) performed a total of more than 5000 working sessions, more than 1700 accesses to the Workspace, and more than 750 analytics tasks. These exploitation and uptake indicators are likely to grow in the coming months thanks to data updates and continued use, further development of existing VLabs, and finally, the creation of new ones.Source: Project Report, Blue Cloud, D4.2, 2020

The gCube system: delivering virtual research environments as-a-service
Assante M., Candela L., Castelli D., Cirillo R., Coro G., Frosini L., Lelii L., Mangiacrapa F., Marioli V., Pagano P., Panichi G., Perciante C., Sinibaldi F.
Important changes have characterised research and knowledge production in recent decades. These changes are associated with developments in information technologies and infrastructures. The processes characterising research and knowledge production are changing through the digitalization of science, the virtualisation of research communities and networks, the offering of underlying systems and services by infrastructures. This paper gives an overview of gCube, a software system promoting elastic and seamless access to research assets (data, services, computing) across the boundaries of institutions, disciplines and providers to favour collaboration-oriented research tasks. gCube's technology is primarily conceived to enable Hybrid Data Infrastructures facilitating the dynamic definition and operation of Virtual Research Environments. To this end, it offers a comprehensive set of data management commodities on various types of data and a rich array of "mediators" to interface well-established Infrastructures and Information Systems from various domains. Its effectiveness has been proved by operating the D4Science.org infrastructure and serving concrete, multidisciplinary, challenging, and large scale scenarios.Source: Future generation computer systems (2018). doi:10.1016/j.future.2018.10.035

Virtual research environments as-a-Service by gCube
Assante M., Candela L., Castelli D., Coro G., Lelii L., Pagano P.
Science is in continuous evolution and so are the methodologies and approaches scientists tend to apply by calling for appropriate supporting environments. This is in part due to the limitations of the existing practices and in part due to the new possibilities offered by technology advances. gCube is a software system promoting elastic and seamless access to research assets (data, services, computing) across the boundaries of institutions, disciplines and providers to favour collaborative- oriented research tasks. Its primary goal is to enable Hybrid Data Infrastructures facilitating the dynamic definition and operation of Virtual Research Environments. To this end, it offers a comprehensive set of data management commodities on various types of data and a rich array of "mediators" to interface well-established Infrastructures and Information Systems from various domains. Its effectiveness has been proved by operating the D4Science.org infrastructure and serving concrete, multidisciplinary, challenging, and large scale scenarios.

PARTHENOS - D6.3 Report on the implementation of the Joint Resource Registry (interim)
Frosini L., Assante M., Dell'Amico A., Lelii L., Candela L., Pagano P.
The D6.3 Report on the implementation of the Joint Resource Registry documents the interim implementation of the Joint Resource Registry (JRR). It complements the D5.2 Report on the design of the Joint Resource Registry deliverable by providing details on how to interact with and exploit the functionalities it provides. The JRR hosts the PARTHENOS entities represented according to the PARTHENOS Entities Model defined in WP5. As such, it represents an information system for the PARTHENOS community and the PARTHENOS universe of tools and services designed for and released in the PARTHENOS infrastructure. This deliverable presents, in Section 2, the principles and guidelines that govern the implementation of the JRR which has been designed to support the persistence of the PARTHENOS Entities. The JRR is implemented as a tailored information system capable of satisfying the evolution of the model itself, the main features of which are described in section 3 since the facet based resource model is extensively referred to throughout this report. Entities, Resources, Facets and Relations are described in detail. Section 4 describes the set of technical components comprising the JRR and APIs, covering the architecture which includes the Resource Registry Service, Context Client, Schema Client, Publisher and Client. Section 5 provides information regarding how to interact with the Resource Registry Service by exploiting the Context and Schema Port Types. The REST APIs are also presented for each functionality. Section 6 covers the backend database, OrientDB, a Multi-Model Open Source NoSQL DBMS that brings together the power of graphs and the flexibility of documents into one scalable high-performance operational database. The final section provides information on the Studio GUI used by the Content Administrator for searching between the created types and inspection of their schema.Source: Project report, PARTHENOS, Deliverable D6.3, pp.1–53, 2017

AGINFRA PLUS - Open Science Data Analytics Technologies D3.1
Candela L., Cirillo R., Coro G., Lelii L., Pagano P., Panichi G., Scarponi P., Sinibaldi F.
Deliverable D3.1 "Open Science Data Analytics Technologies" is a deliverable of type Demonstrator meaning that it manifests in artefacts (software releases) other than reports. In particular, the deliverable is about the software realising the Data Analytics & Processing Layer of the AGINFRA+. This software is part of a large software system named gCube (www.gcube-system.org). The gCube system offers a large array of services supporting the entire lifecycle underlying a research activity (data management and collation, analytics, collaboration, sharing) and the possibility to combine these services in Virtual Research Environments1. In the context of AGINFRA PLUS the following gCube components have been primarily exploited, consolidated and enhanced to serve the analytics needs arising in the context of the project use cases. DataMiner, i.e. a service enacting its users to perform data analytics tasks by relying on an array of analytics methods and a distributed and heterogeneous computing infrastructure. This service is available by a web-based GUI as well as via a web-based API based on the OGC WPS standard. SAI (Statistical Algorithm Importer), i.e. a service enacting its users to make available their own analytics methods via the DataMiner service. In addition to that, the entire analytics solution made available for AGINFRA PLUS cases counts on (i) a shared workspace realising a cloud-based file manager for managing content of interest and sharing this content with co-workers, (ii) a social networking area enabling users to post messages and have discussions, (iii) a flexible catalogue enabling to publish and discover items of interest including "research objects" resulting from an analytics task. This technology is deployed in its latest version in every Virtual Research Environment supporting AGINFRA PLUS cases2. The major enhancements to the technology pertaining to AGINFRA PLUS have been included in three gCube major releases3 4.7 (October 2017), 4.8 (November 2017), and 4.9 (under production).In particular, with these releases a new"black-box" oriented approach (https://wiki.gcubesystem. org/gcube/Statistical_Algorithms_Importer:_Java_Project#Black_Box_Integration)has been envisaged and implemented to enact analytics method owners and developers to easily integrate theirsolutions into the DataMinerservice. Among the supported black-box typologies there is that for KNIME workflows, i.e. analytics methods implemented by a KNIME workflow. KNIME is among the key technologies supporting the Food Safety Risk Assessment cases. In order to enact the execution of KNIME-based black-boxes, the distributed computing part of the data analytics platform has been extended to integrate the KNIME execution engine. Other cases are counting on the same mechanism to integrate entire applications (WOFOST4) as well as Python-based methods.Source: Project report, AGINFRA PLUS, Deliverable D3.1, pp.1–4, 2017

Accessing biodiversity databases: a domain specific query language and a unifying data model
Candela L., De Faveri F., Lelii L., Mangiacrapa F., Marioli V., Pagano P.
During the last years, considerable progresses have been made in developing on-line species databases. However, species data are scattered among several databases and information systems and there is no single database that can claim to host, and make available in a seamless way, all the species data needed by the communities willing to have access to such typology of data. In this report we present a domain specific query language and a unifying data model for species data that characterise a mediator service specifically conceived to act as a single access point to the plethora of existing species databases.Source: ISTI Technical reports, 2014
