Complicated data requires a smart solution at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics

Second only to genomics, astronomy-related datasets are the largest in the world. LASP at the University of Colorado Boulder relies on NetApp solutions to help collect, manage, store, and distribute these massive collections.

In this complex environment, It’s all about auto-tiering. LASP has huge amounts of data that cannot be treated equally because of storage costs.

We have over 130 scientists doing ongoing research on missions that impact everything from climate change to solar physics and all sorts of amazing things. The NetApp solution allows them to more easily collaborate and be much, much more effective.

So LASP turned to NetApp for help: StorageGRID to manage its data; all-flash arrays to handle the massive performance and speed requirements; ONTAP FabricPool to auto-tier its data and save about 50%.

Once the data is processed, LASP has to get it into the hands of researchers around the world using various cloud methods – all integrated seamlessly with NetApp.
