Networked attached storage vendor Network Appliance, Inc. today announced that NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is upgrading and expanding its network infrastructure with Network Appliance(TM) storage solutions.

According to Network Appliance, the solution enables on-demand public access to massive amounts of astrophysical research information and data from the observatory's networked archive, enabling people around the globe to experiment and explore newly discovered corners of deep space.

"Data security and availability are vital to scientific and governmental institutions, and enterprise business initiatives," said Ray Villeneuve, vice president of strategic marketing at Network Appliance. "NASA's Chandra X-ray Center is responsible for gathering and processing massive amounts of data for public consumption and as such must have the storage architecture that supports immediate data-access with minimal downtime."

The Chandra X-ray Center, which provides public access to its archive of data, receives and records observations of X-rays from high-energy regions of the universe via the orbiting Chandra X-Ray Telescope. The Chandra X-ray Observatory accumulates massive volumes of data with each experiment, placing network scalability and reliability as foremost concerns in a high-growth condition. The multiterabyte NetApp F840 is the ideal solution to support the complex data used for scientific research.
