Description of Project/Concepts

MataNui is intending to provide a data serving platform for the Grid that can replicate between various sites, store/query arbitrary amounts of meta-data, and is interfaced with a RESTful web service. The concept also allows for an alternative server front end using the Griffin GridFTP server. The concept is (initially) based on storing all data/meta-data in the GridFS mode of the MongoDB NoSQL database. This code consists of a WSGI based RESTful web service that interfaces directly with the MongoDB, and can be used together with Apache and mod_wsgi.

The MataNui project is resulting from the ambitions of the New Zealand BeSTGRID project ( to provide a reliable and easy to use “Data Fabric” for the Globus Toolkit based Grid. The implementation is also aligned with the ambitions of the Australian Research Collaboration Service ARCS (

The project has been outlines at the New Zealand eResearch Symposium 2010 in Auckland on this poster:
