What is OURRstore?

OURRstore is an NSF funded digital tape archival storage system that has been designed and implemented at the University of Oklahoma. This large, automated tape library was created to support long term storage of terabyte to petabyte quantities of “write once, read seldom if ever” STEM research data. As such, OURRstore should not be considered a form of “working storage”, but a secure and redundant form of archival storage.

What kinds of data can be stored in OURRstore?

OURstore is funded through an NSF grant and, as such, is a repository for STEM research data. 

In addition to the STEM limitation, data can not be legally constrained (i.e. no HIPA, FERPA, etc.).

What does OURRstore cost?

OURRStore costs approximately $120 per 10 TB for an estimated 8-year data retention. 

How do I archive my research data in OURRstore?

OURRstore is currently in early access. If you are interested in archiving your unconstrained STEM data on OURRstore, contact RCI Support
