The Data Commons Repository is the ideal platform for ease of reuse of data. It can store very large datasets, which are difficult to transfer, upload, and download across different computers and platforms. From the Data Commons Repository, data is accessible to CyVerse's suite of large-scale computational analysis resources, so that users can seamlessly analyze, manage, and publish new results. Within the Data Commons Repository, your data will be very secure and will have a permanent identifier (a DOI or ARK) for proper citation.
If you are interested in obtaining a permanent identifier for one or more datasets, please read the Identifier FAQ page and then answer the questions on Is the CyVerse Data Commons Repository right for my data?
