The DARE platform enables researchers and their developers to exploit more capabilities to handle complexity and scale in data, computation and collaboration. Today's challenges pose increasing and urgent demands for this combination of capabilities. To meet technical, economic and governance constraints, application communities must use use shared digital infrastructure principally via virtualisation and mapping. This requires precise abstractions that retain their meaning while their implementations and infrastructures change. Giving specialists direct control over these capabilities with detail relevant to each discipline is necessary for adoption. Research agility, improved power and retained return on intellectual investment incentivise that adoption. We report on an architecture for establishing and sustaining the necessary optimised mappings and early evaluations of its feasibility with two application communities.
