SweStore - Swedish Storage infrastructure
SNIC has created a storage infrastructure to complement the computational resource.
In scientific areas such as high energy physics (the Large Hadron Collider at CERN), climate modelling, bioinformatics, bioimaging etc., the demands for storage are increasing dramatically. To serve these and other user communities, SNIC has created a unified storage infrastructure that takes into account the needs from many scientific disciplines.
Each of the SNIC partners operates a centre storage infrastructure. This is a storage solution that lives independently of the SNIC computing resources and can be accessed from all such resources at the centre. The centres have a common method for accessing the local centre storage, using common names for environment variables.
NATIONAL ACCESSIBLE STORAGE
The aim of the nationally accessible storage is to build a robust, flexible and expandable system that can be used in most cases where access to large scale storage is needed. To the user, it appear as a single large system, while it is desirable that some parts of the system are distributed to benefit from the advantages of, among other things, locality and cache effects. The system is intended as a versatile long-term storage system.
