Open Storage Network

SCEC participated in a recent Open Storage Network Meeting at TACC in Austin.

The design goals for the system include:

  • Cost-Optimized: Researchers run on a pretty lean budget. The OSN is purpose-built, so no out-of-scope costs.
  • Scalable: One size doesn't fit all. Whether you need a half petabyte or eight, the OSN can handle it.
  • Protected: All data is stored in at least two different sites, ensuring the data is accessible.
  • Low Maintenance: All systems report to the OSN Command Center (OCC). On-site personnel are only needed for hardware replacement.
  • User Friendly: Get data in and out of the OSN easily with a familiar tool: Globus
