Data & File Systems
We recognize the importance of being able to manage your files and data. Scientific datasets are growing very rapidly and there is an increasing need for large scale data storage and high performance data transfers. As science becomes more distributed organizing and sharing data becomes very important.
This section covers several topics on how to successfully manage your data at NERSC.
This page provides some of the information that Principal Investigaors can use when writing the Data Management section of their resesrch proposals. NERSC provides its users with the means to store, manage and share their research data products. We provide a variety of storage resources optimized for different phases of the data lifecycle, tools to enable users to manage, protect and control their data; high-speed networks for intra-site and inter-site (ESnet) data transfer; gateways and portals for publishing data for broad consumption; and consulting services to help users craft efficient data management processes for their projects.
