Managing large research data with SDS@hd
The scientific data storage SDS@hd is a central storage service for hot large-scale scientific data that can be used by researchers from all universities in Baden-Württemberg. It offers fast and secure file system storage capabilities for individuals and groups. The service is operated by the Heidelberg University Computing Centre and running in production since 2017 with a continuously growing number of users and storage projects. Access management can be done via a predefined set of roles and also based on access control lists on the filesystem level enabling researchers to share data in a collaborative fashion.
