A Discussion on the Practicality of Archiving Data in the Cloud

SESSION: A Discussion on the Practicality of Archiving Data in the Cloud

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Molly Rector, Brandon Canaday, Jerry Shoopman


HPC environments may be skeptical about utilizing public cloud services for archive data. However, as organizations continue to hold on to ever-increasing amounts of data for future use and analysis, they need storage solutions that are both reliable and cost-effective - and many are wondering if the cloud might be the answer. Cloud storage provides organizations a means to expand their data capacity without the large capital investment otherwise required to build additional infrastructure. The cloud storage consumption model is built around ease of use, flexibility, and perhaps most importantly, cost savings. However, organizations need to be vigilant and conduct the appropriate up-front research when considering a cloud service provider to ensure it will truly protect an organizations' data into the foreseeable future. In this session, we will share information about what HPC environments should consider before implementing a cloud storage solution for long-term retention.
