Mass Data Storage System - ANUSF Consulting Support

Projects dealing with massive amounts of data need to carefully consider all aspects of data acquisition, storage, retrieval, navigation, and interpretation. ANUSF consulting staff are available to assist projects in all phases of this cradle-to-grave process. Send email to anusf@anu.edu.au to make an appointment for an exploratory conversation.

Some topics on which projects might need assistance include:

  1. project data flow;

  2. determining if a formal database manager is recommended;

  3. database organization;

  4. efficient access of project data;

  5. data interpretation tools;

  6. source configuration management.

If your project changes direction or data patterns, let ANUSF staff know so we can adjust your storage environment appropriately
