The rasdaman Datacube Engine

The rasdaman datacube engine has pioneered actionable datacubes by establishing an array query language, meantime adopted as an ISO SQL extension standard, and a massively scalable distributed array database system. The technological lead of rasdaman is proven by multi-Petabyte operational services, open benchmarks, and a continuous series of international innovation awards. While in CREODIAS Earth Observation datacubes are provided, rasdaman is domain-independent and has proven advantageous on human brain images, genetics, astrophysics, and other science and engineering domains.


Creodias Datacubes is a service provided by rasdaman GmbH, co-funded by EOSC-hub. After the end of this project, rasdaman GmbH continues participating in the EOSC initiative.


EU H2020 EOSC-hub has been a lead contributor to the development of EOSC. EOSC-hub brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub: a single contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. For researchers, this will mean a broader access to services supporting their scientific discovery and collaboration across disciplinary and geographical boundaries. The project mobilises providers from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other major European research infrastructures to deliver a common catalogue of research data, services and software for research.

EOSC-hub has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 777536.

When it comes to processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:

You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be erased immediately if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 of the GDPR applies in detail, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected.
  • Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 of the GDPR): You have the right to request a restriction of processing for the duration of a review if any of the conditions specified in Art. 18 of the GDPR have been met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to the processing.
