"abstract": "<p>This document accompanies the Work Package 3 deliverable D3.2 (&quot;Initial implementation of the platform&quot;), available in video format (screen recording) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnlUOG3lOu4&amp;feature=youtu.be.</p>\n\n<p>The goal of this document is to provide an explanation of the various sections of the demonstration video as well as some background for the use cases and tools.</p>\n\n<p>This document will also highlight the main aspects of ScienceMesh&#39;s platform and how it already enables some of the use-cases in the context of Work Package 4 (remote sharing, collaborative editing of documents and access to data science environments).</p>\n\n<p>The initial platform consists of two main components:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>a. The IOP (Inter-Operability Platform)</li>\n\t<li>b. The &quot;Central Service&quot;</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>The IOP component is a software package which is deployed on each one of the sites, as to allow them to interact with other components of the ScienceMesh. The IOP guarantees compatibility of the use-cases across multiple vendor EFSS (Enterprise File Sync and Share) platforms and allows them to speak the common language of the CS3APIs3, essential to the cross-integration of the various micro-services which constitute the platform. The IOP also provides monitoring information about the health of a mesh node and is continuously reporting these metrics to the Central Service component.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nThe Central Service is a collection of different software solutions which will be deployed as a single package. This service is a lightweight management service for the ScienceMesh federation that enables the monitoring and site registration, allowing the operation team of the ScienceMesh to:</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li>Register and get an API key which will allow a node to effectively become part of the Mesh;</li>\n\t<li>Have access monitoring dashboards (through Grafana) and helpful insights (Prometheus) as well as information which will help the governing bodies ensure a fair distribution of resources within the federation.</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>These two use-cases are implemented through the Mentix service. Another component of the Central Service is the Mesh Directory service, which allows the nodes to establish trust relationships between end-users and bootstrap the process through arbitrary communication channels, thanks to the invitation workflow.</p>",
