Reva Logo

Reva is an interoperability platform consisting of several daemons written in Go. It acts as bridge between high-level clients (mobile, web, desktop) and the underlying storage (CephFS, EOS, local filesytems). It exports well-known APIs, like WebDAV, to faciliate access from these devices. It also exports a high-performance gRPC API, codenamed CS3APIS, to easily integrate with other systems. Reva is meant to be a high performant and customizable HTTP and GRPC server.

To promote free and unrestricted adoption of CS3 APIs and the reference implementation Reva by all EFSS implementations and all platforms and application providers, both community and commercial, Open Source and Open Core, CERN released the source code repositories under Apache 2.0 license.

Further evolution of the CS3 APIs will be driven by the needs of the Educational and Research community with the goal of maximizing the portability of the applications and service extensions.
