Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This training module provides you with instructions on how to deploy B2SAFE and B2STAGE with iRODS4. It also shows you how to use these services. Moreover, the module provides hands-on training on Persistent Identifiers, more specifically Handle v8 and the corresponding B2HANDLE python library.

B2SAFE is a robust, safe and highly available service which allows community and departmental repositories to implement data management policies on their research data across multiple administrative domains in a trustworthy manner.

B2STAGE is a reliable, efficient, light-weight and easy-to-use service to transfer research data sets between EUDAT storage resources and high-performance computing (HPC) workspaces.

Please consult the user documentation on the services for a general introduction, if needed, before following the contents of this git repository. This training material foresees two types of trainees: those who want to learn how to use the EUDAT B2SAFE and B2STAGE services; and those who prefer to deploy and integrate these services. Following the full, in-depth tutorial will allow you to understand how the components of a service are combined and thus enables you to also extend the integration of services at the low-level (technology-level rather than API level). Following just the "use" part of the training will familiarise you with the APIs of the services, but not with the underlying technology and its wiring.
