Archive Tier Storage

Long-term archive for large datasets that will not be frequently accessed.  

What is Archive Tier Storage?

The Archive-tier storage solution gives researchers a robust, secure, and inexpensive place to store very large datasets for five years or more. Think of this as a good alternative to purchasing a bunch of USB hard drives to back up important data or to archive data that you don't have to access on a regular basis.

How do I access Archive Tier Storage?

Before you can access MSI's Archival-tier of storage you must first purchase a minimum subscription.  Archival storage pricing and purchase instructions can be found in the MSI Service Catalog.   Access to archive storage is made via Globus and some custom tools to help automate workflows.
