Resarch Computing Backup Methods
This software is used to provide both the school and individual research groups a platform for backup of their data to tape. We maintain a 64 slot LTO-5 tape library for the department, as well as a separate 64 slot LTO-5 library for a research group. The department will provide backups of research machines of size 2 Terabytes or less. Anything larger will be the responsibility of the research group. EAS Computing will work with the research groups requiring larger backups to tape to purchase additional tapes for our existing system, or to purchase additional libraries and software. The current per tape storage is about 1.75Tbytes.
Disk to Disk
EAS Computing will work with groups to exploit their existing storage units to either mirror or replicate data.
