Difference: IntermediateArchive (r1 vs. r2)

Intermediate Archive

With the "Intermediate Archive", ZIH is closing the gap between a normal disk-based file system and Longterm Archive. The Intermediate Archive is a hierarchical file system with disks for buffering and tapes for storing research data.

Its intended use is the storage of research data for a maximal duration of 3 years. For storing the data after exceeding this time, the user has to supply essential metadata and migrate the files to the Longterm Archive. Until then, she/he has to keep track of her/his files.

Some more information:

  • Data will be stored in two copies on tape.
  • The bandwidth to this data is very limited. Hence, this file system must not be used directly as input or output for HPC jobs.
  • This Intermediate Archive will be mounted at /??? on all HPC systems.
