The Galactica platform project aims to provide large-scale engineering and scientific experimentation services for the PetaSky project. The latter is based on a multidisciplinary approach involving five (5) CNRS institutes and sixteen (16) research laboratories.

Galactica is an open platform that has three major objectives for two user communities:

    Provide large-scale engineering and experimentation services in support of the research work carried out under the PetaSky project.
    Provide the Data Science research community with a large-scale, flexible and configurable storage and computing infrastructure that meets the specific needs of experiments.
    Capitalize on the experience acquired in the context of the PetaSky project, to build and make available to the Data Science research community large datasets and benchmarks from the field of cosmology and astrophysics.
