Archiving of digital publications
A specific challenge for this project is the archiving of a very large number of small files.
The attempt to backup a large number of files on tapes may very quickly destroy the drive because of a high rate of start-stop operations.
This problem is solved by the file system SAM-FS by the strategy of gathering such files into tar-containers,
As usual in such projects, we provide a virtual machine in a highly available environment as a server for data storage.
Under this project, the possibilities of this virtual server is used to meet the specific requirements of workplaces in the FIZ chemistry. .
