The gCube Website, found at http://www.gcube-system.org/ is a portal, based on Liferay, for distributing all information related to the gCube technology. The gCube website offers the tools for the distribution of software and documentation produced by the Project. Two dedicated sections, named Documentation and Downloads (under Developer section) are available from the Website's menu bar. The pages contain informations about the software and documentation which are distributed through the site.



Clicking on the link Documentation, the user would move to the gCube Software Documentation where three different guides are available: Administrator Guide, User Guide and Developers Guide.
