OSiRIS Overview

Main Attributes of OSiRIS

  • Enables storage-integrated data lifecycle management possibilities.
  • Provides a software-defined storage service for multi-institutional domains
  • Built from inexpensive, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components
  • Robust, reliable infrastructure constructed to minimize single points of failure
  • High performance by integrating high-bandwidth network links, a large number of disk spindles, large server memory and SSDs
  • Built using open source software components allowing the project to customize specific components to provide required OSiRIS functionality
  • Incorporates detailed monitoring of the infrastructure/network topology.
  • Enables cloud infrastructures, e.g., OpenStack
  • Collaborative storage for researchers/resources outside of our campuses
  • Connected to the Internet at 10 to 100 Gbps
  • Uses Globus Connect GridFTP-based Data Transfer Nodes (each at 2 x 25Gbps minimum) for wide-area data transfer
