Centralized File Server for Astronomy Students
Department of Aerospace and Astronautics
We request funds to buy a large (96 TB) shared file storage server for students in the astronomy department. Current storage solutions for our students only provide 7 TB to share, yet in the Big Data world of astronomy one night of telescope data already exceeds 100 GB. Our academic and research productivity is being held back by a lack of storage space; a large remote file storage server will allow UW Astronomy to stay competitive, productive, and encourage collaboration in the era of Big Data.
