StrongLink will enable DKRZ to automate 120PB per year of HPC workflows plus the
migration of 150PB from its legacy HPSS system to LTFS
Portland, Oregon – Oct 29, 2020
StrongBox Data Solutions (SBDS), the leading provider of autonomous large scale data management and archive solutions, announced today it was awarded a five-year contract to implement a new data management system for DKRZ, to expand the Center’s critical climate science research data services. The project will be driven by SBDS’s flagship StrongLink software, and will replace the existing HPSS HSM with a new system based upon open standard LTFS and S3, providing researchers with seamless access to 150PB of legacy research data. In addition, StrongLink will also automate multi-tier storage workflows, virtualizing flash, disk, and LTFS tape to support at least 120PB per year of new HPC research data flows.
