Access to Climate data is crucial to sustain research and climate change impact assessments. It has a strong societal impact as those changes will have to be mitigated as much as possible. The whole climate data archive is expected to reach a volume of 30 PB in 2019 and up to 2000 PB in 2024 (estimated), evolving from 30 TB in 2007 and 2 PB in 2014. Data processing and analysis must now happen remotely for the users: they now have to rely on heterogeneous infrastructures and services between the data and their location. Developers of Research Infrastructures have to provide services to those users, hence having to define standards and generic services to fulfill those requirements. It will be shown how the DARE eScience Platform (http://project-dare.eu) will help developers to develop more rapidly needed services for a large range of scientific researchers. The platform is designed for efficient and traceable development of complex experiments and domain-specific services on the Cloud. It will be also shown how the integration of the DARE platform together with the climate IS-ENES (https://is.enes.org) Research Infrastructure front-end climate4impact (C4I: https://climate4impact.eu/) will help developers leverage heterogeneous architectures transparently for the benefit of researchers.
