New high end data collection, management, hosting and persistent storage system.
UTDR is a professionally managed, centralized resource that provides reliability and security for very large-scale high-performance storage over the forthcoming 10 Gbps network that will connect UTEP to TACC resources. This data system provides 4-5 petabytes of storage, but is expected to grow rapidly in scale. UTDR facilitates data management proposals that are now a requirement in all NIH and NSF proposals. UT system researchers are afforded scientific competitive advantage by having access to large data collections across the UT System with a variety of software services. UTDR fulfills a number of simple and advanced needs:
· cross-data collection and analyses,
· critical storage and back up,
· data mining applications, and
· management plans for NIH and NSF proposals
