Tape object storage Indicate Archival Gateway allows EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) to back up research data from hard disk object storage systems to an IBM TS4500 tape library using drives and TS1160 brackets. The PoINT software receives data via the standardized S3 interface and writes it directly to tape – without the need for a hard disk buffer. EMBL, located at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridgeshire, England, stores research and compressed data from less than 1MB up to 100GB, with a current data set of approximately 50PB. PoINT Archival Gateway provides the required read and write rate of at least 1PB per week.
