Your Data, Your Way: The IPlant Foundation API Data Services

This paper introduces the iPlant Foundation API Data Services, a cloud-based, hosted solution for distributed data and metadata management in the iPlant Data Store. The iPlant Data Store is a virtual storage solution for over 7000 users providing seamless access to over 6PB of distributed storage within the iPlant cyber-infrastructure using command line utilities, FUSE mounts, desktop GUI tools, and web interfaces. The Foundation API Data Services expand the standard CRUD operations by providing a collection of services that allow users to move data into and out of the iPlant Data Store using multiple transfer protocols, transform data between formats, perform advanced metadata management using both structured and unstructured data, and define their own private storage grid by registering their own resources.
