NEW Low-Cost Archival Storage

Low-cost archival storage is now available to the Cornell community. This service features:

Archival Storage
  • Fast tunable parallel file transfers via Globus Online. Much faster than commercial clouds.
  • Upload and download files, or synchronize local directories with the archive
  • No network or file I/O charges for uploading or downloading data
  • Reliable RAID6 disk-based DDN storage
  • Continuous background verification and error correction against silent data corruption
  • Share your archived data with collaborators with file permission control or publish data directly from the archive, e.g., meet your data management plan requirement for NSF grants.
