Post NERSC Goes with Tape for Active Archive

This week the Active Archive Alliance announced that the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) has implemented a tape-based active archive to support its growing data storage needs. The NERSC active archive takes in approximately 50 TB of data each day and provides a way for NERSC's users to instantly access all of their data in a way that is is extremely cost effective and energy efficient.
We provide some of the largest open computing and storage systems available to the global scientific community,' said Jason Hick, storage system group lead at NERSC. 'At any given moment, there are about 35 people logged into the archive system, including users from as far away as Europe or Asia, to researchers at various universities across the United States. Our active archive system allows us to support the high read rates that our users demand while retaining data efficiently, reliably and cost effectively.'
