The Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research (MPI) has permanently retained terabytes of measurement data using online storage. This includes data that is only rarely accessed. The MPI holds petabytes of data overall. In order to reduce the costs associated with maintaining such large volumes, the institute chose to use the PoINT Storage Manager software, which enables long-term preservation, transparent read access and multiple media formats.
