The system has been designed to be both cost-effective and scalable.

To maximise value, Pawsey has invested in Ceph, software for building storage systems out of generic hardware, and has built the online storage infrastructure around Ceph in-house. As more servers are added, the online object storage becomes more stable, resilient, and even faster.

“That’s how we were able to build a 60 PB system on this budget,” explains Gray.

“An important part of this long-term storage upgrade was to demonstrate how it can be done in a financially scalable way.  In a world of mega-science projects like the Square Kilometre Array, we need to develop more cost-effective ways of providing massive storage.”
