Service description


Long-term storage of valuable data.

Data repository for departments: Saves compressed unstructured “Storage worthy” data. The optimal size for the data is between 10 and 200 GB. The “data processor” is an AD user in an AD group or it is a “functional” user AD or rather is an AD group.

  • The maximum supported file size is 2 TB.
  • The system is controlled with pre-processing via NFS or CIFS and shares data on the archive-related storage. Mixed-mode access (CIFS and NFS) is not possible.
  • Additionally this service allows data objects to be “back copied” on local client file systems for reading and further processing.
  • Manually deleting stored data.
  • Reports on the amount of data stored per share and in exceptional cases per directory.

The LTS service is not a data memory archive. The ETH Library provides a digital data retention service which archives digital data.

Customer Benefits

The LTS service offers ETH researchers, lecturers and employees the possibility of long-term data storage within the framework of the current BOT.

After writing, the data is replicated to the replication location and written to tape at each location.

Customer Groups / Cost / Order

The LTS service is available to all ETH members.

No steering tax will be charged for the LTS service from January 1st, 2020. The IT Services thus support good scientific practice in the handling and storage of scientific data. The order must be placed via the ISG of the respective department.
