This whitepaper presents the results from benchmarking of DataCore Swarm object storage on a multi-Terabit converged Ethernet Software-Defined Storage Super Data Cluster deployed by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Scientific Computing Department (SCD) for the JASMIN project.
Many datasets, both model and observational data, are too big to be easily shipped around; JASMIN enables scientists to bring their processing to the data. It offers flexible data access for scientists to collaborate in selfmanaging group workspaces, enabling models and algorithms to be evaluated alongside curated archive data and data to be shared and evaluated before being deposited in the permanent archive.
JASMIN is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the UK Space Agency (UKSA), educational institutions and private industry to provide the UK and European climate and earth-system science communities with an efficient data analysis environment. It is managed jointly by the STFC Scientific Computing Department and the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA), which is part of STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) Space. The JASMIN infrastructure is located at RAL in Oxfordshire, UK.
