The NextGEOSS Cloud Integration service provides users with the tools to integrate, test and validate a scalable data processing service, and make it available as a “Cloud appliance” on the Platform repository for its exploitation in Production.
It allows developer users to deliver data processing capabilities in a very interactive way. They benefit from a Continuous Development / Continuous Integration (CD/CI) work environment, to fully control their applications lifecycle. Applications are validated and versioned in a dedicated Integration environment, and then stored on a Platform repository allowing the application author to define access control rules. Application owners can decide to apply access conditions, e.g. only to their own organisation members, to some registered third-party organisations.
This service is based on the Ellip Solutions operated by Terradue.
The NextGEOSS Cloud Integration service also includes a Support service to developer users, via a Helpdesk and a discussion forum, to create community and interact with other NextGEOSS contributors.
