 Your data is stored on the STRW data storage media which can be either the local disk of your workstation,​ the local-to-the-server direct attached disks of a server or on the bulk storage devices. As part of the data management cycle you need to keep track of your data and make sure that at the end of your employment at the Observatory you either copy your data to your new institute or provide the computergroup with a list of pointers to allow them to store your data onto a save archive. Your data is stored on the STRW data storage media which can be either the local disk of your workstation,​ the local-to-the-server direct attached disks of a server or on the bulk storage devices.

 +As a result of theoretical calculations or model simulations,​ data may be produced that are further processed to allow astronomical interpretation. These calculations can take place on the desktop or on server levels, where storing the data will most efficiently be done on the local-to-the-cpu storage devices. So either the local disks of the desktop or the local attached disk devices for the servers. ​

 +Similarly to the data processing for data coming from the big observatories it is the users responsibility keep track of the data and its integrity. As most of this processing is done on the Linux computing environment,​ similar facilities can help out in this process.
