Collaboration IAS / CDS

Created: March 26, 2013 - 11:45 CET

For improving the reliability of Aladin, the Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale (IAS) and the Centre de Donnes de Strasbourg (CDS) have deployed a new space of storage (~20TB) and a new Web access on the Orsay site. This new disk space is dedicated to clone a large number of multi-scale surveys (HEALPix) available in Strasbourg (DSS, 2MASS, SDSS, GALEX, PLANCK ...).

This collaboration has been effective since March 2013 and will ensure continuous operation even in case of major failure.

This new configuration does not require any software adaptation, Aladin automatically takes into account the new data mirror site.
