LTS Expands Storage for Digital Scholars

LTS is excited to announce a significant increase in network storage for faculty or graduate students working in digital scholarship. This expansion brings available storage to 60 terabytes, representing a five-fold increase in storage resources for digital scholars.

The new storage for digital scholarship will be provisioned on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Chulin Meng, Director of Library Technology, at chulin.meng@lehigh.edu or Julia Maserjian, Digital Scholarship Project Manager, at jcm5@lehigh.edu for more information.

This storage expansion is phase two of our three-phase storage strategy:

  • • Phase one was the procurement of a high-performance storage area network (SAN) to support the key growth area of virtualization of critical campus applications;
  • • Phase two is an expansion of the high-performance SAN as well as an investment in the open-source Ceph software to support digital scholarship and the growing digital library;
  • • Phase three will be a 2014-15 strategic priority: to vastly increase storage capacity and performance for campus researchers.
