26 July 2016 GAVIP: a platform for Gaia data analysis
Author Affiliations +
Gaia is a major European Space Agency (ESA) astrophysics mission designed to map and analyse 109 stars, ultimately generating more than 1 PetaByte of data-products. As Gaia data becomes publicly available and reaches a wider audience, there is an increasing need to facilitate the further use of Gaia products without needing to download large datasets. The Gaia Added Value Interface Platform (GAVIP) is designed to address this challenge by providing an innovative platform within which scientists can submit and deploy code, packaged as "Added Value Interfaces" (AVIs), which will be executed close to the data. Deployed AVIs and associated outputs may also be made available to other GAVIP platform users, thus providing a mechanism for scientific experiment reproducibility. This paper describes the capabilities and features of GAVIP.
