Design Goals



Researchers run on a pretty lean budget.  The OSN is purpose-built, so no out-of-scope costs.



One size doesn't fit all.  Whether you need a half petabyte or eight, the OSN can handle it.



All data is stored in at least two different sites, ensuring the data is accessible.


Low Maintenance

All systems report to the OSN Command Center (OCC).  On-site personnel are only needed for hardware replacement.


User Friendly

Get data in and out of the OSN easily with familiar tools.
