data03 storage system is based on DellEMC Isilon hardware, that is currently about 450TB large. The
data03 system is located in the Leiden Data Center and can be used to store your scientific data, directly from the acquisition source for saving measurement data or via your Workstation to allow you to do specialized data reduction. As
data03 also has an archiving functionality it is essential your data stays safe over a 10 year period. For that reason all
data03 data is synchronized with an identical system in the Delft University Data Center.
data03 storage system has been setup a little different than the
data02 system. The main differences are

It is your responsibility to copy all relevant data from
data02 to the new
data03 system. We ask you to do so as system management has no clue to the data management of your scientific date. We also ask you to take this opportunity to weed out unnecessary data from
data02 and only move essential data to
data03. System management can help you perform the actual copying of data if it concerns 'easy' full directory transfer. But, please, take this opportunity to look at your data and sift out unnecessary information before transering it to
data02 system will stay alive for the coming months, but as it is already a 6 year old piece of hardware, there is no guarantee it will stay fully functional for a long time. We plan to shutdown
data02 the end of November 2022. So make sure you have copied all your important data by then.
Please inform us when you have transfered your data storage use from
data03, because we will then close your
data02 share for writing. This ensures that no one in your group can accidentilly still write science data to the old storage.
