EZID Service Update: May 2015



Recent Enhancements, News, and Activities

  • This month, we made the move to the “cloud-based infrastructure” mentioned in last month’s update. EZID is now hosted on Amazon Web Services. As mentioned previously, we made this change because we expect the new environment to be much more flexible and reliable over time. This means that as EZID grows and changes, our IT infrastructure will now very easily grow and change with us.

EZID Service Description

EZID (easy-eye-dee) is a production service that gives researchers the ability to create and manage long-term identifiers so that they can to track usage, get credit for their work, share their data, and have the data reused for additional research. As a result, EZID identifiers also make it possible to increase citations, to build on previous work, to conduct new research, and avoid duplicating previous efforts.
