The Data Management Center is a state-of-the-art data center located in Seattle, Washington. We have over twenty full-time staff members dedicated to ensuring the highest quality seismic data is readily available to scientists around the globe.
The DMC data storage operates on a Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform with 1.2PB of usable disk. We discontinued the use of tape for near-line storage in 2009.
The DMC mostly works in a VMware ESXi virtual machine environment. The advantages for this setup include:
- Lower power usage
- More effective crash recovery
- Ease of maintainence
- Greater ability to tune
- Greater ability to scale
We welcome visitors, and commonly host scientists for collaborative work from within the United States and from member institutions around the globe.
