The central data management is made up of

  • Online Storage

    • for High Performance Computing and Cluster Systems
  • Tape Libraries

    • for Migration of active (online) data at High Performance Computing to less expensive storage media
    • for Backup and Archive of central and decentral data in science and administration
  • Distributed storage

    • in the face to data that belong to projects and/or user communities instead of a user (dCache, iRODS)
