Data Storage System

The currently observed phenomenon of the rapidly growing amount of digital information also applies to the scientific community. Access to very efficient supercomputers enables performing analyses of large-scale research problems, what results in generation of huge data sets. They require a completely new approach to information processing and storing. This problem, being currently one of the most important challenges of the modern digital world, is described by the concept of BigData. Also in ACC Cyfronet AGH there is clearly visible correlation between the growing expectations concerning available capacity, speed and additional functionalities of storage resources, caused by offering more efficient computing systems.

Extremely diverse characteristics of research topics, achieved through computational tasks performed in the infrastructure provided by the Centre, is reflected in the complexity of the architecture of the Data Storage System − the main mass storage platform for High-Performance Computers. This system is composed of following elements:

At present, the total storage capacity of Cyfronet disk and tape resources exceeds 45 PB.
