The challenge

Atos has signed a contract with French national meteorological service, Météo-France, to supply a new mass storage system to store and manage the vast volumes of data, which are mainly produced by the organization’s weather forecasting models and by its research work on climate change.

This is a renewal of Atos‘ previous 7-year contract with Météo-France, confirming its excellence and strong capabilities in providing and managing mass storage systems.

The solution

The new storage is based on the HPSS (High Performance Storage System by IBM) solution for which Atos has developed a complete environment which monitors and administrates storage performance and provides support and maintenance throughout the whole lifecycle. This architecture combines disk and tape storage technologies, guaranteeing efficient access times for the most frequently used data, while keeping less frequently accessed data accessible (nearline) in tape robotics.

Business benefit

Annual extensions over a five-year period, will enable the storage capacity to reach 1,3 exabytes (1,300 petabytes) by 2025, enabling it to ingest and render up to 2 and 1.3 petabytes of data per day, respectively.

This will make Météo-France one of the first organizations worldwide to have such a substantial amount of meteorological and climate data stored on one system.
