Data center shared services: Brasil and Japan
Brazil and Japan have signed an agreement to manage a project of store science information in The Amazonas, the new deal will be in association with two research institutes and one data center located in Manaus which have the function of improve the data services, reduce the expenditures and provide Hardware Installation Assistance, Managed Access, Physical Security, Campus Standard Video Surveillance, DCSS Infrastructure, Change Control and Incident Management by mean of one data center shared services.
A project between Brazil and Japan will use a Shared Data Center shared services to monitor the Amazon ecosystem. A data center located in Manaus, the capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, will store the scientific data collected by the project Forest Museum, a bilateral initiative between Brazil and Kyoto University in Japan.
Brazil’s National Education and Research Network (RNP) has signed a partnership with the National Institute of Amazon Research (INPA) for this purpose.
With funding from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA-Brazil), the project is dedicated, among other fronts, to monitoring ecosystem data for studies on Amazonian biodiversity.
The large volume of information generated in the Manaos Data Center Shared Services (DCSS) will be stored, with an average demand of 1 terabyte per month.
On the other hand, the institute will pay the energy consumption of the data center, administered by RNP.
According to the substitute coordinator of INPA´S Strategic Actions, Laurindo Campos, this information will serve as a large database for researchers in Brazil and abroad.
“The association with RNP is fundamental, because the use of such infrastructure will allow foreign researchers to have access to scientific data stored in Brazil,” he says.
“Thus, we are attracting a diversity of new projects that would necessarily go through the data governance of the Data center shared services,” said the manager of INPA.
