 It all depends on your needs

We have several storage solutions available. Which one you need depends on your situation.

What are the options?

At the moment we have the following storage options available*:

Tape Archive

(coming soon)

Object Store

hosted at UM

(available in Q2-2019)

*Each storage flavour can be configured with or without replication.

How much does that cost?

That is hard to say. Prices range from €15 to €300 per terabyte per year, depending on the exact composition for your situation.

€15 - €300 / TB / Year

How to determine what option is best?

To determine your situation we need to plan a personal meeting. In that personal meeting we compose a mix of storage platforms that best suits your situation. When determining the best storage solution for you, we need to answer these questions:

  • How much risk of loosing data are you willing to take?
  • Do you need to work with the data on a daily basis?
  • How many years does the data needs to be available?

These are also the questions that you need to answer in your Data Management Plan.
