Data Management

Data management is an important activity at KIT. Responsibility lies with SCC.

Grid Computing

SCC renders services relating to data storage and data management, including research and innovation in the area of data management.

SCC services mainly cover data storage. The data are stored and, hence, secured on tapes in various tape libraries. In addition, SCC supports database systems, such as MS SQL databases, MySQL databases, and Oracle databases. Other services include data exchange, mass storage of scientific measurement data, and storage of KIT data from various areas. Activities also focus on the Universal Content Management System which comprises image database and document management.

Research is conducted in the areas of Large Scale Data Management & Analysis, GridKa, grid computing, IT security, federate identity management, and iZeus.

Large Scale Data Management & Analysis (LSDMA) addresses the requirements of modern science on special facilities and infrastructure and supports the lifecycle of large data volumes.
