Simulations data is naturally organized in Files in order to interact and exchange information with the simulation engines. These could be input parameters defining the nature of the simulation, and the output of the calculation upon its completion.
Files in the Web Interface¶
When the Files need to be accessed from within the Web Interface, however, it becomes necessary to store them in the Object Storage as mentioned here. The latter then becomes an intermediary to allow accessing the information produced during the simulation time from the web. We further discuss the policies implemented in order to facilitate the security of this approach here.
We introduce the actions related to the Files in the Web Interface in this page.
This affords for the organization of files under a well-defined hierarchic structure, for their easier navigation, retrieval and inspection via remote connection methods for example.
