UCLDH Digital Excursion: Research IT Services' Data Centre
Publication date: Oct 23, 2013 04:01 PM
Nov 12, 2013 05:30 PM
End: Nov 12, 2013 07:00 PM
Location: 1-19 Torrington Place, WC1E 7HB
In this Digital Excursion to the UCL Research IT Services' Data Centre, Bruno Silva will be speaking about the Legion service and architecture as it is laid-out in Research IT Services’ data centres – the high performance file systems, cutting edge networks and the many computing generations and technologies, as well as some of the work that is being carried out therein. He will also talk about some of the challenges of supporting this infrastructure, and the work RITS has been doing collaboratively with researchers to help them leverage it efficiently and effectively.
Dugan Witherick will show what a petabyte of storage looks like, in the form of our high performance file system and massively scalable object store. More importantly though, he will talk about how Research IT Services are working to provide this storage as a service which will not only enable UCL researchers and their collaborators to store their research data more safely, but also to actively manage that data.
Thomas Jones will lead the tours into the data centre and also talk about the challenges of maintaining the servers and supporting infrastructure.
Please assemble in the foyer of 1-19 Torrington Place just before 5.30pm. Refreshments will be available in G31, Foster Court after the talks.
Please note that registration for this event is required.
