-The __C__ommon __D__ata __St__orage __AR__chitecture (CDSTAR) is GWDG's system for storing and +CDSTAR (__C__ommon __D__ata __St__orage __AR__chitecture) is a head-less data repository and framework for research data management applications. The goal is to provide a rich set of common functionality (scalable storage, publishingarchiving, metadata annotations, access management and search) as a web-service for other applications to build upon, and to simplify the rapid development of highly customized tools and workflows for data-heavy research applications.
-searching objects in research projects. The goal of the software is to provide a storage system for structured and unstructured data. One of our main assumptions is that the data originates from research projects with diverse scientific backgrounds. The use cases that provide the requirements for CDSTAR span digital humanitiesastronomy, and medical information management. The goal of CDSTAR is to provide an easy-to-use storage system that can store, modify, annotate, search, and access a large amounts of diverse +
-CDSTAR is developed at the GWDG as Open-Source-Software under the Apache2 LicenceCDSTAR is offered to the GWDG customers as individual service to power digital research infrastructures, or as a software product that can be extended for individual use cases.+CDSTAR is developed at GWDG as open-source (apache licence 2.0) and offered to our customers as a fully managed service (including storage, backup and long-term archiving), or as a self-hosted solution for individual use-cases. Please [[https://www.gwdg.de/support|contact support]] for details.
-==== Using CDSTAR ====+==== Getting Stated ====
 +Source code, binary builds and documentation for recent CDSTAR versions (3.x) can be found at [[https://cdstar.gwdg.de/|cdstar.gwdg.de]]. We provide a public [[https://cdstar.gwdg.de/demo/|API demo]] (username: ''test'', password:''test'') for quick tests. Please note that the demo instance is wiped clean at least once a day. You can also run a local or self-hosted instance as described [[https://cdstar.gwdg.de/docs/dev/|here]], or contact [[https://www.gwdg.de/support|support]] for a hosted instance.
-==== Public Test Instance ==== 
-The public test instance at [[https://cdstar-prod04.gwdg.de/dev/null/|https://cdstar-prod04.gwdg.de/dev/null/]] is accessible from most institute networks and accepts any username and password your provide. It runs on the latest cdstar snapshot release and thus might be unstable from time to time, but it always contains the newest bug-fixes and features for your testing pleasure. All data uploaded to this instance is purged at least once a day If you cannot access the above URL, please send an E-Mail to the GWDG support with the public IP or IP-range of your network. 
-==== Dedicated Test Instances ==== 
-If you need a stable test instance with more storage and pinned to a specific maintenance version, please contact the GWDG support. 
-==== Local test environment ==== 
-During development of own applications against the cdstar API we strongly recommend to run a local instance of CDSTAR on your own hardware. An executable jar with minimal configuration and all dependencies included is available upon request. 
-==== Source Code ==== 
-You can obtain the GWDG CDSTAR Cloud from GitHub. 
 ==== Client Libraries ==== ==== Client Libraries ====
-If you want to use GWDG CDSTAR for your application, you can either implement the very simple API or use existing client implementations for your programming language +All functionality is provided as a simple language-independent [[https://cdstar.gwdg.de/docs/dev/#endpoints|web API]], so any generic HTTP client library or even ''curl'' would be suitable to integrate CDSTAR with new or existing applications. Specialized client libraries and command-line tools are available for python3 (see [[https://gitlab.gwdg.de/cdstar/pycdstar3|pycdstar3]]) and Java. Other language integrations may also be available by third-party.
