Pawsey has announced the procurement of a new multi-tier storage that will significantly improve data availability, speed of data transfer, and overall storage capacity for your projects.
The 130 PB data storage system, currently being installed, includes:
- A disk-based system powered by Dell, named Acacia after Australia’s national floral emblem the Golden Wattle – Acacia pycnantha, providing 60PB of high-speed object storage for hosting research data online. This multi-tiered cluster separates different types of data to improve data availability.
- Offline storage, named Banksia, after another Australian wildflower with a genus of around 170 species in the plant family Proteaceae, provided by Xenon, incorporating Pawsey’s current object storage infrastructure, including two mirrored libraries each holding 70PB of data, duplicated for data security.
If you are interested in participating in an AskMeAnything session about Pawsey Storage, please include your details and questions below. The session will be scheduled based on demand and if organised you will receive an email with details about the session.
