Long term storage within the scope of cooperations

An increasingly important role belongs to long-term storage of irreplaceable data, such as results of measurements of physical experiments, digitized views of archaeological artifacts and documents. In addition to high own requirements for storage capacity, there is a use by external scientific institutes in the form of cooperations. For this purpose we give them virtual machines on powerful servers which have access  to the data storage. Our work is an exact and securely reproducibility of the data as a stream of bits  without examining the contents of the data. A continuous improvement of the underlying technology sometimes requires a migration of data. This is also done by us.

Beyond that we are working accordingly to the scientific tasks defined in the goals of the cooperation agreements.
