December 8, 2017  2:30pm – 3:30pm
RAWL 1062

ITaP Research Computing will host a talk covering data storage options available on campus at 2:30 p.m. this Friday, Dec. 8, in Rawls Hall, Room 1062. The talk is free and open to the Purdue community. Researchers with data storage needs and academic IT staff are particularly encouraged to attend.

Preston Smith, director of research services and support for ITaP, will provide an overview of different research data storage options and tools on campus, including Data Depot, Fortress, Globus and the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), and explain what each option is well-suited for. A question and answer period will follow his talk.

This is the first talk in a planned series hosted by ITaP Research Computing that will take place on alternating Fridays. Future topics will be announced at a later date.

Anyone with questions about Friday’s data storage event or the seminar series should contact Eric Adams, the program manager who coordinates training for Research Computing, or 49-62945.
