The increasing volumes of data being produced, curated and made

available by research infrastructure (RI) initiatives in the environmental

science domain require services to optimise the delivery

and staging of data on behalf of investigators and other users of

scientific data. Specialised data services for managing data lifecycle,

for creating and delivering data products, and for customised data

processing, play a crucial role in RIs to serve their user communities.

We describe our experiences identifying the time-critical requirements

of environmental scientists making use of ICT research

support infrastructure. We present a microservice based infrastructure

optimisation suite called the Dynamic Real-time Infrastructure

Planner (DRIP). We provide a case study whereby DRIP is used

to optimise runtime service quality for a data subscription service

provided by the Euro-Argo RI using EGI FedCloud and EUDAT’s

B2SAFE service.
