The data tsunami is upon us: transformative research is
increasingly data-intensive, with collections in TB to PB,
and Exabytes (EB) coming soon. Projections of research
storage growth show that, by 2025, research data will
outstrip even YouTube. Yet many institutions are
underprepared not only for the “volume, velocity and variety”
of data, but especially for stewardship of exponentially
The University of Oklahoma (OU) has been awarded a National
Science Foundation grant that has acquired, and will deploy
and maintain, for 8+ years, a large scale storage resource —
the OU & Regional Research Store (OURRstore) — to enable
faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate students and
undergraduates to pursue data-intensive research, by building
large and growing data collections, to share these datasets
with collaborators and even the public, and to provide this
capability to all institutions in (a) the Great Plains
Network and (b) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive
Research (EPSCoR) jurisdictions.
Via an innovative, low cost business model, researchers will
buy their own tape cartridges, good for 8+ years, and pay
zero usage charges (just cartridge and shipping costs).
OURRstore is expected to have hundreds of users.
