LocationGold Coast
DescriptionThe Open Storage Network (OSN) project demonstrates a distributed, scalable storage infrastructure designed to address storage and access needs for active-use data sets that require managed, longer-term storage and/or transfer across institutions. The OSN offers scalable services with shared support and governance, and addresses cyberinfrastructure needs that are difficult for academic institutions to support individually. The purpose of this BoF session is to present the project to the broader PEARC community and gather feedback on design and future growth. The OSN needs to partner with Research Computing professionals on first and last mile solutions for scientific applications, and for future expansion of the network of storage hosting organizations.
