Aruna Object Storage (AOS) is an open source data storage platform that enables scientists to store, annotate and share their data according to FAIR principles.
The name Aruna originates from the god of the sea in hittite mythology and their name for the sea and bodies of water in general. We choose this name to symbolize our vision of a revolutionary cloud-native data lake.
Storing data in localized domain specific data silos can limit collaboration, reuse, and analysis of data. The Aruna platform can bring great benefits for your research data such as improved collaboration, compliance with FAIR principles, scalability, data security, and easy integration with existing systems and workflow systems, ultimately accelerating scientific progress and improving research quality.
Currently our service is an invitation only platform for members of the NFDI consortia. In the future we plan to open our platform for a broader audience.
Projects are used to organize users on a per institution or research project basis. They are created on demand, contact us and we will figure out how to organize your specific request.
Currently we do not enforce storage quotas, but as always there is a physical limit in storage capacity. If you plan to store large amounts of data (>1 TB) contact us and we will figure out a solution.
You can choose how your data is shared, and we offer a variety of access models, from highly confidential data to public datasets that anyone can view and download. By default, all of your data is private and only accessible to the people you grant access to, but a minimal configurable set of metadata is always public to ensure discoverability.
When you use our managed service, we ensure that your data is stored through our custom data proxy component, which encrypts, compresses, and anonymizes all user-provided data by default. This way, your data is always secure while stored on disk.
Data proxies are the decentralized backbone of the data plane, interacting directly with data storage providers and providing a unified S3-compliant interface for data. In addition, they can be configured to perform data encryption, compression, anonymization, and end-user access control, including enforcement of data usage policies.
