Tier-1 Data


More and more VSC users have computational tasks that make intensive use of large data sets. The VSC Data component enables research data to remain close to the computing infrastructure during the active phase of the data life cycle. At the same time, migrating large data sets to and from VSC infrastructure becomes easier.


The VSC Data component is based on iRODS and Globus, adding tools to automate data collection, data quality controls, and data migration to and from HPC systems.


Development of the VSC Data component is still ongoing and not available yet. Please reach out to for more information.
