INDIGO - DataCloud delivers open source software components tailored to scientific communities and to e-infrastructures, aimed to increase ease of use and effectiveness in the exploitation of Cloud resources.
INDIGO - DataCloud releases are available from the INDIGO-DC Repositories.
The maintenance and development cycle of the INDIGO-DataCloud Core Services and Applications is outlined in the figure bellow.
Taking into consideration the length of the project, the rapidly evolving cloud-environment, the need to offer stability to production infrastructures and in the same time to address requirements from user communities, the INDIGO-DataCloud major releases will be supported and maintained for 10 months after the release date. The availability of a new major release of INDIGO-DataCloud does not automatically obsolete the previous ones and multiple major releases may be supported at the same time according to their negotiated end-of-life policies. Within an INDIGO-DataCloud major release only the latest version of a component is supported.
Taking into account the rapidly changing environment, and especially some of the upstream release cycles (e.g. OpenStack), the INDIGO-DataCloud maintenance schedule is organised in the following periods:
INDIGO DataCloud releases are available from the official INDIGO - DataCloud Repositories, for operating systems packages and Docker containers.
