Data Transfer for primary publication#

We offer support for different tools which fulfill the following requirements for the data transfer process.

  • Secure:

    The data integrity must be verified after the transfer. The target should be a byte-exact copy of the source. For that, checksums needs to be calculated and compared.

  • Stable:

    The data transfer should run without interruptions. After a interruption, only missing datasets should be transferred.

  • Permissons and Time stamp:

    Basic Metadata of the transferred data should be maintained or adapted to a desired state.

  • Efficient:

    The data transfer should use the bandwidth optimally, for example by multiple parallel data streams or striping the data transfers over multiple connections.

We introduce you to these tools in the following.
