Data Management Resources
Finding, organizing, publishing, transporting, collaborating on, and preserving your data.
Utilizing the resources below Research Computing can facilitate your research data management needs.
- The UCR Library
OSF is a free and open-source project management tool that supports researchers throughout their entire project lifecycle. As a collaboration tool, OSF helps research teams work on projects privately or make the entire project publicly accessible for broad dissemination. As a workflow system, OSF enables connections to the many products researchers already use, streamlining their process, and increasing efficiency. Researchers use OSF to collaborate, document, archive, share, and register research projects, materials, and data. OSF is the flagship product of the non-profit Center for Open Science.

Open Source Data Management Software iRODS
iRODS: Data Management Model
iRODS provides eight packaged capabilities, each of which can be selectively deployed and configured (usually into known patterns). These patterns and capabilities represent the most common use cases as identified by community participation and reporting.
The model contains eight capabilities which can be combined into interesting patterns:
- Data to Compute is Automated Ingest + Tiering + Additional Policy
- Compute to Data is Sorting Policy + Job Routing Policy
- Synchronization is Automated Ingest + Sync Policy
- Data Transfer Nodes is Cache Management Policy + Replication Policy

Globus move, share, & discover data via a single interface – whether your files live on a supercomputer, lab cluster, tape archive, public cloud or your laptop, you can manage this data from anywhere, using your existing identities, via just a web browser.
AWS DataSync makes it simple and fast to move large amounts of data online between on-premises storage and Amazon S3, Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS), or Amazon FSx for Windows File Server. Manual tasks related to data transfers can slow down migrations and burden IT operations. Simplify and automate transfers, move data 10x faster.
AWS Content Delivery Amazon CloudFront is a fast content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to customers globally with low latency, high transfer speeds, all within a developer-friendly environment. CloudFront is integrated with AWS – both physical locations that are directly connected to the AWS global infrastructure, as well as other AWS services.
Git Large File Storage An open source Git extension for versioning large files. Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like GitHub.com or GitHub Enterprise.
DAT Dat is a protocol for sharing data between computers. By making sure changes in data are transparent, everyone receives only the data they want, and by connecting computers directly (rather than using a cloud server), Dat powers communities building the next-generation Web.
Re3Data is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines.
FAIRSharing A curated, informative and educational resource on data and metadata standards, inter-related to databases and data policies.
AWS Registry of Open Data This registry exists to help people discover and share datasets that are available via AWS resources.
- See all usage examples for datasets listed in this registry.
- See datasets from the following and more.
Google Dataset Search Dataset Search enables users to find datasets stored across the Web through a simple keyword search. The tool surfaces information about datasets hosted in thousands of repositories across the Web, making these datasets universally accessible and useful.
Azure Open Datasets Curated open data made easily accessible on Azure
