CSIRO Data Access Portal (DAP) passes 1 Petabyte milestone
by Sue Cook (CSIRO IM&T)
Last week the CSIRO Data Access Portal (DAP) passed the 1 petabyte (PB) mark. This means that it now holds over 1 PB of CSIRO data and software files which are preserved and encapsulated together with their metadata for long-term discovery. Over 900 terabytes (TB) of the data in the DAP is astronomy data from the Parkes and ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder) radio telescopes. Not all the data in the DAP are publicly accessible. CSIRO researchers can also use it to archive data for internal use. Every record in the DAP has a persistent URL, and public records have a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), used for data publication and citation. With the first public release in 2011, storage growth has jumped from an average of 18 GB a week between Sept 2012 and Feb 2013, to an average of 8 TB a week between Sept 2017 and Feb 2018.
