Welcome to the documentation for NEANIAS Data Avenue service


Data Avenue is a data storage access tool. Data Avenue aims at simplifying handling data residing on remote storages of various types, such as FTP servers, Amazon S3, Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), OpenStack’s Swift, etc. Data Avenue is not a storage, it does not persist any data at all (neither access credentials), but it allows to upload, download, organize data (create folders/containers/buckets, delete files or entire directories, etc.), and even transfer data between any of the supported storage types, e.g. from S3 to HDFS. Data Avenue offers a uniform and easy-to-use interface to access all the supported storage types. E.g., directory creation can be done in the same way regardless it happens on a GridFTP server or on Amazon S3 - from the user’s point of view. There is a lightweight, pure javascript-based graphical user interface (GUI) that can be used in any web browser, and there is a clean REST application programming interface (API).
