Archving data from Archer

Dear Helpdesk,

I've a bunch of netcdf data on Archer - from which I have extracted a subset of data and transferred to Edinburgh. How do I archive all this data for long term storage. I think I would want to use the JASMIN elastic tape storage. Simulations were done as part of Gabi Hegerl's TITAN project.

Elastic tape is a good place to put data, but it is not curated and thus doesn't constitute an archive as such. Please contact Sam Pepler (sam.pepler@…) at CEDA for help with true archiving.

If this has to be done now, you will need first to get a group workspace ( from which data can be staged on its way to ET. A nominated gws manager will have permissions to write to ET.

In the not too distant future, it will be possible to move data directly to ET from ARCHER - I recommend, if possible, waiting until this capability is available. We are not short of RDF space.

Hi Grenville,

that sounds like I don't do anything right now. I'll contact Sam to see if BADC interested in long-term archive. As project funded by ERC I can imagine he might not be…

But I am thinking ahead a bit — what happens when ARCHER goes in December/Jan??

The future of the RDF is uncertain, but JASMIN phase 4 has the capacity to absorb RDF data in any case.
