A gCube infrastructure manages various types of resources, such as:
- Services and Applications
- Collections and Auxiliary Resources
Hardware resources include gCube hosting nodes (containers) as well as gLite storage elements, computing and Cloud nodes, while gCube services and external software fall into the second category type. Collections and auxiliary resources can be data, metadata, indices, schemas or transformation utilities, among others.
All these resource information are collected by the gCore Based Information System (IS) which plays the role of the infrastructure's registry and supports the publishing, discovery and monitoring of all the resources belonging the infrastructure. A working instance of the Infrastructure Monitor is available in the D4Science Services Gateway.
