We provide portable data storage solutions for users that have large data but limited bandwidth.
Data-intensive computing is a growing problem in high-performance computing particularly when the data has to be transferred to or from an external source. While the Centre for Advanced Computing has a high-speed connection to ORION and CANARIE, Ontario and Canada's research networks, not all researchers have access to this resource. Typically, the "last mile" of the network - connections between researchers' department and their labs is the weakest portion of the network.
CAC currently has hard drive toasters available for physically transferring data.
