Corral is the research data storage resource provided by TACC as part of the UT System Research Cyberinfrastructure initiative.

In this training, current and prospective users will receive a brief overview of the system followed by detailed discussion of some of the common usage modes, examples of how to perform tasks such as uploading data, changing access permissions, and using graphical client tools to manipulate data on Corral.

We will demonstrate both basic file system access and the iRODS data management system, which provides additional metadata management and data collections features for users with complex collections of data, and we will also discuss important topics such as open vs closed web access, sharing of data, and incorporation of Corral into data management plans for NSF and NIH.

The class will consist of a roughly 2-hour presentation and webcast, followed by an opportunity for one-on-one training and consultation with TACC staff.
