- The purpose of this project is to establish an active archival facility at Fermilab. This effort is in support of the Strategic Plan for the Scientific Computing Division 2014‐2016 as most recently published in V2.0 by Rob Roser. The second of three long term goals within the plan is to leverage our technological advantages in Data Storage (big networks, huge robotic tape capacity, outstanding caching systems etc.) and our domain expertise in this area to offer a Data Archival Facility for Scientific data. This would require an investment on our part to improve our interfaces to our systems such that they are easy to interact with for non‐experts, and that is the purpose of this project.
