Services

EIDF provides computing, data management, IoT and safe haven services for the DDI programme, and offers bespoke customisation and service co-creation for DDI partners, researchers and innovators.

Where services are still under development we label them "[in development]". Where services are in use by a small number of early adopters we label them "[early adopter]". Services without a particular label are generally available. 

Service catalogue

EIDF's service catalogue will grow and change over the coming years. We want EIDF to be dynamic and challenge-led, with services co-designed with partners to solve real problems. We aim to be as agile and responsive as we can be to the needs of our many stakeholders across the DDI programme. For details on access please see Access and Charges.

EIDF is optimised for data science. We offer a range of compute services from scalable notebooks, through data science desktops to specialist compute platforms, including a large-scale AI engine—the Cerebras CS-2 .

EIDF provides management services for the archiving and re-use of data. Our archiving service offers long-term storage and preservation for the DDI programme's data assets, while our growing analytics-ready collection makes data available for researchers and innovators.

EPCC manages a Trusted Research Environment through which organisations can provide Safe Haven Services. These services enable analysis of de-identified sensitive data. Trusted Research Environments can be tailored to meet the needs of analysts, data scientists, data controllers and information governance.

We work with partners from across the DDI programme to co-create and tailor services to meet their needs. Using a building block approach from the "EIDF toolkit", our engineers can work with you to solve your particular problems, whether it be data hosting, AI modelling, high-performance analytics - or something entirely new!

Technical documentation

Some services have additional technical documentation available, principally for developers or "power users". We host these documents at GitHub to allow a broader community to join in and contribute.
