This class will be webcast.

This training provides an overview of the types of storage systems available in XSEDE, at the campus level, and from commercial providers, with some brief discussion of technical characteristics of the various systems and where they fit within research data workflows. Characteristics of interest to researchers focused on HPC or on data-driven computing will be discussed, as will issues related to transfer of data between systems, management of data across systems, and the overall life cycle of research data as it relates to the details of data architecture. The importance of understanding each storage system and data element within a dynamic ecosystem of data and services will be emphasized as a step towards understanding how to construct and execute research data management plans.
