Lab-IT - Solution for secure data storage and data management

Main content

At the Department of Earth Science, all lab instruments are connected to a server operated by UiB's IT department.
All transmission is done via a local area network (LAN)
Raw data is continuously transferred from the instrument-PC to the UiB server.
Processing of raw data is done by uploading data from the server.
The solution involves secure storage (mirroring), as well as long-term storage (storage + backup).
It also involves the possibility of remote access to data and instruments.
