HTTPS (Browser-based access and various Java clients)
SMB (i.e. a file share)
sFTP (e.g. FileZilla, CyberDuck)
NFS (only with discussion with ResPlat Data Team)
Encryption (discuss with ResPlat Data Team)
HTTPS protocol only : Files can be encrypted at the storage layer (protection against unauthorised access to system back end only). Other protocols will be available in the future.
Selected meta-data can be encrypted (protection against unauthorised access to system back end only)
The primary system consists of a controller node (handling data base transactions) and 2 IO nodes. The IO nodes are used to actually move data to and from the storage. More IO nodes can be added as needed.
The underlying storage is provided via a highly scalable CEPH cluster. More nodes can be added to the cluster as needed.
The combination of the scalable Mediaflux cluster and scalable CEPH cluster provides a very extensible environment as our data movement needs grow
The primary controller server is part of a High Availability pair. If one fails, the service can be moved to the other.
The data base on the primary controller server is backed up every three hours. This means that if the DB should become corrupted, the gap is 3 hours in which data may have arrived which is no longer known.
Your data are replicated to another Mediaflux (DR) server in a separate data centre (Noble Park)
Data that have been destroyed on the primary server may be retrievable from the DR server (administration task)
