Data analysis service or PARADOX Hadoop cluster consists of a single name node that runs the YARN resource manager, and three additional data nodes. The name node is hosted on a machine with 4-core Intel Xeon E3-1220v3 CPU running at 3.1 GHz, with 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB of local hard disk storage. Each of the data nodes, which perform the computation and storage, are hosted on machines with 24-core Intel Xeon E5-2620 CPUs at 2.4 GHz, with 64 GB of RAM and 2 TB of storage. In total, the cluster provides access to 60 CPU cores, 180 GB of RAM and 5.3 TB of storage in HDFS.

In the analysis of very large datasets, the movement of data can present a far more severe bottleneck than the actual computation. Therefore, the PARADOX Hadoop cluster is designed to overlap computation and data storage operations, i.e., to enable performing of computation on the same machine(s) that store the corresponding data.

For more information about PARADOX Hadoop please visit the NI4OS-Europe service catalogue.

RePol – Repository Policy Generator is an open-source web application that guides users through the process of defining policies for repositories and web-based services. It helps in defining and maintaining comprehensive and clear repository and privacy policies. Generated privacy policies are suitable for any kind of service. RePol uses a step-by-step wizard and self-explanatory forms to guide users through the process. By choosing options in a form, users shape a policy document with predefined policy clauses formulated in line with the current best practice. The resulting policy document may be downloaded as an XML file, additionally customized, and integrated into the service or repository. The collected data and the key elements of the generated policy are provided in a machine-readable format. This allows for an automated interpretation of created policies and extraction of repository-level metadata for inclusion in registries, catalogues and various operational and data discovery tools. The resulting policy document may be downloaded, additionally edited, and integrated into a repository.
