Duke Physics Department Crunches Data with JetStor RAID Arrays
Scientific research can produce huge volumes of data for analysis, a fact the Physics Department at Duke University knows well. Each of the department’s 12-plus research groups exploring nuclear physics, particle physics, and other exotic fields generates a terabyte of data every month.
To meet the storage challenge this data presented, the research groups used direct-attached storage. However, this approach limited storage to the size of each computer’s hard drive and impeded data sharing among researchers. It also barely kept pace with the intense data bursts generated by the groups’ experiments.
Learn how Duke’s Physics Department deployed high-speed JetStor RAID Arrays to absorb “bursty” data generation and enable the storing and sharing of large data sets.
