New Archival System at DKRZ: shift of migration period

Jul 09, 2021

Dear users,

the preparation and testing of the new HSM to meet the specific needs of DKRZ is still in progress. Users will be informed by email three weeks before the new HSM will take up its operation.

If you already want to try out a few things with the slk tool (the new command line interface which replaces pftp), you are welcome to do so. We have set up an HSM/StrongLink training system running on a virtual machine for this purpose. There is no tape system connected to the training system and users must not archive files larger than a few megabytes. A description for the first usage is provided here: https://doc.dkrz.de/doc/hsm/test_system.html

We have prepared several resources for you, which are updated continuously:

* FAQ: https://www.dkrz.de/s/hsm_faq
* Documentation: https://doc.dkrz.de/doc/hsm/index.html

Best regards,
DKRZ
