MeerKAT archive and data access

2 Dec 2019, 11:30


Talk Storage and IO HPC Technology


Martin Slabber (SARAO)


The MeerKAT archive was made accessible from the internet earlier this year.
This allow researchers from across the world to pull data from the MeerKAT archive.
In this talk I'll describe the MeerKAT storage system that consists out of several petabytes of observations backed by a Ceph distributed storage system. The use of Ceph at SARAO and the infrastructure around the archive will be described. There after the data access methods from the internet and from partner institutes like the CHPC will be presented.
