Software Designed to
Make Data Distribution Easy
Functional and Dependable for Consumers
Robust and Maintainable for Providers
The Pelican Platform is designed to meet the needs of data providers and consumers in the age of “Big Data”. Our Mission? Provide a platform that makes deploying data easy and accessing this data easier via well documented APIs and client tools.
The Open Science Data Federation
Backed by the Pelican Platform, the Open Science Data Federation (OSDF) is an OSG service hosting data origins and caches across the globe.
Integrated with other OSG services such as the OSPool, the OSDF facilitates the distributed nature of a national compute pool. In addition to the performance improvements, purpose built plugins for HTCondor make it easy for researchers to harness these caches.
