Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Data sharing is essential in the numerical simulations research. We introduce a data repository, DataVault, which is designed for data sharing, search and analysis. A comparative study of existing repositories is performed to analyze features that are critical to a data repository. We describe the architecture, workflow, and deployment of DataVault, and provide three use-case scenarios for different communities to facilitate the use and application of DataVault. Potential features are proposed and we outline the future development for these features.
