Multi-Petabyte Storage Environments: Sharing and Storing Strategies for Data- Intensive Organizations
In various organizations, there is often a desire to share research data files with other research groups, whether internal or external. Due to the large volume of data often generated, it is typical to archive this data to a longer term, lower cost storage medium, such as cloud or tape. A solution must be provided that can both archive the data and restore the archived data files to a more accessible location when they need to be shared. StorCycle® can be used to curate large collections of data as well as archive large data sets, or even completed project data sets, and then easily restore them when further use or examination is needed. The software simplifies the migration of multi-petabyte data sets to longer term, lower-cost storage platforms, such as cloud or tape.
