Tiered Storage Approaches to Big Data: Why look to the Cloud when you’re working with Galaxies?
Event Date: 12/15/2011 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

The ability for organizations to keep up with growth of Big Data in industries like satellite imagery, genomics, oil and gas, and media and entertainment has strained many storage environments. Though storage device costs continue to be driven down, corporations and research institutions have to look to setting up tiered storage environments to deal with increasing power and cooling costs and shrinking datacenter footprint of storing all this big data.

NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information Management (EOSDIS) is arguably a poster child when looking at large image file ingest and archive. Responsible for processing, archiving and distributing Earth science satellite data (e.g., land, ocean and atmosphere data products), NASA EOSDIS handles hundreds of millions of satellite image data files averaging roughly XX GB in size and totaling over 3PB of data.

Discover long-term data tiering, archival and data protection strategies for handling large files using a product like Quantum’s StorNext data management solution and similar solutions from a panel of three experts. Hear how NASA EOSDIS handles its data workflow and long term archival across four sites in North America and makes this data freely available to scientists.
