ORDS, research data network

  1. 1. ORDS to TrunkDB Kris Popat
  2. 2. What is it? • Originally ORDs: Oxford Research Database Service. • Database as a Service • Designed to support data storage and manipulation during the ongoing research work. • Hosted on Oxford’s own servers. • For the long tail of researchers who had little or no access to share database services • Now moving to the cloud to be TrunkDB
  3. 3. Why Services • Hosted and secure • Can share with colleagues • Can create multiple versions • Not just sitting on researchers computer

  7. 7. Database Screen
  8. 8. Why Versions? • As technical people we think of a database as an object. • However researchers think primarily of the data – How it was created – How it is updated and recorded – How it has changed over time • The original ORDs was designed to be a service for the data not the database

Shared Datasets, API • By creating a static view on the data. • When specified as public this data is available from the database API • The full API is also available so new clients can be created to present the system. • New clients would need to integrate with Shibboleth to access the majority of the API
  19. 19. Where is it? • Currently entering private beta • Will be entering public beta early in the new year • Release of service is scheduled for June next year. • The service is at https://trunkDB.com • The code that runs it is open source and available on github under than ORDs
