Locker is a cost optimized, high-capacity, large file storage service for research data. Locker provides high performance for large files, and allows investigators across U-M to connect their data to computing resources necessary for their research, including U-M’s HPC clusters.
Locker can only be used for research data. It is tuned for large files (1MB or greater) but is capable of handling small files such as documents, spreadsheets, etc. Locker can be used in combination with the Globus data management sharing system for hosting and sharing data with external collaborators and institutes.
Replication, snapshots and sensitive data will be supported. General availability is scheduled for early 2018.
