Replication Manager


One of SeaDataCloud's main objectives and challenges is to provide stable and efficient access to data resources managed by distributed data centres. This is achieved by the connection to the EUDAT Cloud which is now the third part of the SeaDataNet infrastructure.

The Replication Manager (RM) was developed as a Java tool to replace the Download Manager (DM). It can be used on both Windows and Unix platforms. The Replication Manager is maintained by SeaDataNet partner IFREMER together with EUDAT partners (DKRZ, GRNET, CINECA, CSC, STFC), responsible for the Cloud, and partner MARIS, who is responsible for developping the Request Status Manager service and ensuring that the 3 components work well together.

The last version of the Replication Manager is 1.1.3 (compatible with Tomcat < 10).

Replication Manager - User manual

The user manual describes how to prepare your data for download by the Replication Manager, it also gives information about how to check the conformity of the coupling table and the consistency between the coupling table and the CDI metadata catalogue.

Please contact the CDI system coordinator MARIS for support on installation and configuration and to initialize the connection to the central system.

WARNING: External users do not need to install it to download data. This software is only used by data centres or data focal points connected to the SeaDataNet infrastructure.

WARNING: When upgrading from old version : Do not backup your web.xml file.  RM requires usage of the new version of the file since version 1.1.1. Instead follow section 3.3.1 of the installation manual. Other config files are fine to put back from the backup
