Notes from the Hardware Committee report, John Heimaster

Discussion of downtime extension

Discussion of the question of future file structures, future storage, and integrating amodel in which customers provide financial support, while others do not, for such resources as storage. Must view the problems of computational power vis-a-vis storage. It's a fairly new situation in which experimental sciences produce significant amounts of data that must be retained for extended periods.

Older hardware must soon be retired, and these changes provide an opportunity to restructure storage.

We have a range of options. But we must give our users guidance. What incentives do we provide users to move in a particular direction. We must make decisions.

Hardware options have changed. We have to allow our users to retrieve their data, which means that data placement is key.
