The ENES data federation builds on European data nodes and portals which are seemlessly integrated into the worldwide ESGF data federation. The federation provides climate simulation as well as observational data products in the Petabyte range to a large user community from different scientific disciplines (e.g. climate modeling, climate impact studies) as well as higher level service providers (e.g. climate change adaptation consultency agencies).
The infrastructure supports data replication, versioning as well as synchronised distributed search catalogues.
