Archive migration is probably what is called a mammoth project in IT. In addition to the enormous size of around 1.7 petabytes (PB) that needs to be migrated, some of the data has been stored in the archive for a very long time. This in itself is a great result and testimony to a secure and stable archive, but this circumstance caused the project team around the archive migration one or the other challenge.

In fall, the archive nodes contained in the archive will be migrated. Until then, however, there is still a lot to do. While work is going on behind the scenes on the front end for the new Digital Archive and for the metadata form, among other things, we are also hard at work getting the new infrastructure up and running. But, for our node contacts, too, preparation is key. For this reason, we call on you to use the opportunity and the time until the migration to sift through archive nodes, prepare them if necessary, or even make the decision to part with data that is no longer needed or needs to be kept. In this article you will learn how to prepare your archive nodes for migration. Read the rest of this entry »

Archive Migration – the Big Move of Archived Data

March 26th, 2021 | by

The Archive service enables RWTH employees to store data on a tape robot system for the long term. Archiving data in this way is primarily used to store data that, once stored, should also be stored in this form for the long term.
In the past, data inventories were stored here, primarily documenting measurement results, completed projects or project briefs. With the changes in the funding landscape, which among other things also rethink and demand the keeping of research data, the Archive service is also being rethought. This is partly because the current inventory system will be decommissioned in the summer of 2022 and partly because there is a need to hold data in a structured way in the future. So it’s time for a changeover.
