Stockage distribué sécurisé pour les sciences humaines et sociales

Abstract : Huma-Num is a Very Large Research Infrastructure (known by its initials in French as TGIR) led by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and operated by the CNRS (the French National Centre for Scientific Research). It provides services to the entire Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) academic community and particularly digital services that are focused on research data management with the aim of helping researchers manage the lifecycle of their data. Huma-Num has designed and provided to the community a new storage service for large volumes (several terabytes) of cold or warm data, so-called because it is rarely accessed or modified, but which does have a high value and therefore needs to be safely secured. How the project was designed, the desired outcomes compared with the previous solution (iRods), the selected solution (Active-Circle software on generally-available hardware), the features of the solution, the network architecture implemented (deployment on RENATER through VPN) and the integration with an LDAP directory will be presented. The collaboration that has been set up with the MSH (Houses of the Human Sciences), the information systems directorates of the affiliated universities and with RENATER will also be described. A progress report on the deployment of the project in seven points of presence in France will be provided, and the project’s development opportunities will be pointed out.
