Managing massive archives

Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) selects Quantum tape libraries and StorNext archive file system to manage massive archives.

The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin has selected Quantum StorNext® as their archive file system, with a Quantum Scalar i6000 tape library providing dedicated Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM).

Tackling the archive challenge for scientific data

TACC designs and operates some of the world's most powerful computing resources. The center's mission is to enable discoveries that advance science and society through the application of advanced computing technologies. TACC's environment includes a comprehensive cyberinfrastructure ecosystem of leading-edge resources in high performance computing (HPC), visualisation, data analysis, storage, archive, cloud, data-driven computing, connectivity, tools, APIs, algorithms, consulting, and software. TACC experts work with thousands of researchers on more than 3,000 projects each year.

Researchers from around the globe leverage TACC’s computing resources for projects that span pure research and include partnerships with industry, generating an enormous volume of data which must be archived and accessible for future use. The Quantum system combined with DDN SFA14KX primary storage replaces TACC’s original Oracle solution for migrating files to and from tape archive. The new system will utilize LTO technologies, taking an open approach to archive which is designed for future growth without the limitations of proprietary tape.
