NASA’s Ames Research Cen- ter is no stranger to dealing with large data files, but storing them was becoming problem- atic. For help, the agency looked to the cloud. Often when researchers started a new project, the IT staff planned for more storage, which meant adding file servers. That, in turn, involved con- tacting vendors, finding space in the data center for the equipment, power- ing it, cooling it — all of which took time and effort. Instead, Ames officials chose a cloud-based solution from Avere Sys- tems that would meet the center’s goals for moving to the cloud in the first place: add capacity, avoid latency in downloading files, migrate existing projects to the cloud and secure data once it has been moved. Now officials simply create a new bucket in an Amazon Simple Storage case study BY STEPHANIE KANOWITZ CLOUD A hybrid solution gave NASA’s Ames Research Center the storage it needed — plus speedy response times and encryption NASA Ames smooths its cloud migration NASA.GOV The move to a hybrid cloud has streamlined the way IT administrators manage storage capacity at NASA’s Ames Research Center.
