Data Management

DKRZ also runs hardware and software systems especially for scientific data management services. Data from simulations carried out at DKRZ need to be further processed and subjected to a quality assessment before being archived or directly submitted to further scientific analysis.

The main tasks of the systems include processing and quality assessing of climate modelling results as well as the long-term preservation and worldwide distribution of climate data:

  • Processing and quality assessment with regard to the DKRZ long-term archive or data distribution and usage in national and internationial climate data federations.
  • Database systems and search indices to enable discoverability and accessibility of data.
  • Secure storage for long-term archived data.
  • Deployment of portal services.
  • Systems for data distribution including dedicated project areas and download caches.

Technically, the data management system is based on several blades and a special database server optimized for relational database management systems. Furthermore, virtual machines deploy additional less demanding data management services.
