The service model is PaaS, and the users of it are commonly developers. The users need to develop their application using the framework provided. Currently, the languages supported are Python, Java, and Go. However, the provider intends to include more languages in the future. The user develops and deploys the application using some of the available tool kits, and all the execution is managed by Google’s staff. The high-availability and location distribution are automatically defined. Google is responsible for the elasticity, which is transparent to the user; this means that if one application receives many requests, the provider increases the resources, and the opposite also happens.

Big data are typically distributed both on the collection side and on the processing/access side: Data need to be collected (sometimes in a time-sensitive way or with other environmental attributes), distributed, or replicated. Linking distributed data is one of the problems to be addressed by SDI. The European Commission’s initiative to support open access to scientific data from publicly funded projects suggests introduction of the following mechanisms to allow linking publications and data [31]: • PID: persistent data ID [32] • ORCID: Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier [33].
