Cloudferro Remote Transfer for EODATA - Create Credentials on Creodias WAW3-1 Cloud


This article assumes that you have access to CloudFerro WAW3-1 infrastructure.

If your CREODIAS account has access only to CF2 infrastructure, please contact support to get access to WAW3-1.

The eodata repository contains dozens of petabytes of Earth observation data from missions such as Sentinel-2A or Sentinel-5P.

The service Remote Transfer For EODATA allows you to access this repository directly from your own infrastructure.

This article explains how to begin using this service by activating your account and creating the keys which can later be used for mounting the EODATA repository on your local Windows or Linux computer.
