<h4>Overview</h4>
<p>CDSTAR provides scalable package-oriented storage, role-based access control, ACID transactions, search, long term archiving and much more. A solid and flexible foundation for developing custom repositories, publishing platforms, virtual research environments, long term archives and other data management applications.</p>
<h4>Headless data management framework</h4>
<p>CDSTAR was designed from the ground up as a <em>headless</em> repository: A <abbr title="Representational State Transfer">REST</abbr>ful HTTP back-end services providing functionality to front-end applications via stable and flexible APIs. This enables the development of highly customized user interfaces (UI) or data centic applications without the need to re-invent the wheel.
<h4>Package-oriented storage</h4>
<p>CDSTAR can store a collection of files and meta-data attributes into a single self-contained unit, called a <em>package</em>. These packages are organized in a flat ID namespace and can be distributed across a large number of physical servers or hard disks. This combines the horizontal scalability of object storage (e.g. S3) with the convenience and simplicity of files and folders on package-level.</p>
<p>CDSTAR provides scalable storage, fine grained access control, full-text and meta-data search, <abbr title="Long Term Archiving">LTA</abbr> integration and much more. A solid and flexible foundation for developing custom repositories, publishing platforms, virtual research environments, long-term archives and other data management applications.</p>
<h4><i>Headless</i> data repository</h4>
<p>CDSTAR is designed as a backing web-service, providing functionality to other command-line, desktop- or web-applications via stable and flexible APIs. This headless approach gives application developers maximum control and enables the rapid development of highly customized and specialized solutions, <i>powered by CDSTAR</i>.
<h4>Features</h4>
