Open Data, Open Source, Open Standards

In the era where opennes has become highly valued we sometimes observe confusion about the meaning and consequence of an "open X". We, therefore, briefly discuss three core terms heavily debated in the science data domain.

Open Data

This addresses accessibility of data. Data are said to be open if they can be accessed without any restriction stemming from constrained user groups, etc. A related term is "Free Data" meaning that access is free of cost.

EUDAT Working Group Workshop on the "Real use of Array Databases for Research Communities"

Dear All,
Hope this e-mail finds you well.
As you are members of the RDA Array Database Assessment WG, we believe
that you will also find interesting and beneficial attending the
upcoming free EUDAT WG Workshop on the "Real use of Array Databases for
Research Communities" organised by Luca Trani (KNMI) and Christian Pagé
(CERFACS) and taking place in Amsterdam on 17 May 2017.
The workshop aims at promoting an interesting, broad and fair discussion
about the real use of Array Databases for research communities, trying

RDA Array DB group: tool hosts needed

Dear data / compute centers,
this one is for you specifically: we need to stand up installations of tools
operating on large-scale arrays - can you host installations? I guess it would
mainly mean hosting a couple of VMs plus suitable data they can serve. Those
groups installting the tools would be responsible for support, so no further
work involved.
You have already suitable data? Great! In this case, not much extra storage is
needed, just the VMs.
You have users willing to participate in our experiments? Wonderful!
