Data-intensive computing is a growing problem. In high-performance computing particularly when the data has to transferred to or from an external source. While HPCVL has a high-speed conection to ORION and CANARIE, Ontario and Canada's research networks, not all researchers have access to this resource. Typically, the "last mile" of the network - connections between researchers' department and their labs is the weakest portion of the network.
HPCVL has purchased a variety of portable disk and tape systems. These units were designed for safe shipping of data to and from HPCVL and can connect to a research laboratory via USB, FireWire, eSATA or SCSI. Whether your research requires a few terabytes of disk or a twenty tape autoloade.
