This presentation will introduce participants to the Compute Canada Federation (CCF) and how the national digital research infrastructure helps to support research across all disciplines in Canada, with a particular focus on services for Social Sciences and Humanities researchers. The presenters will briefly discuss the various services that researchers can access through the CCF and how CCF is partnering with other organizations such as Portage to support research data management and ensure access to data for all researchers. The presentation will also introduce participants to different types of data storage available from CCF as well as best practices of data management, sharing and distribution. The presenters will cover differences between long term archival data storage and medium term conventional storage, their limitations, and methods of utilizing their advantages. There will also be a discussion of different methods of data sharing and distribution concentrating on using CCF Globus Transfer service.
