NIRD Backup

NIRD Backup is a complementary opt-in service offered for users of the NIRD Data Peak.

Projects using the NIRD Data Peak service can opt-in to use the NIRD Backup service to ensure a secondary copy of the dataset(s) that require a higher level of security. Data owners/data custodians can make decisions regarding the level of security needed for each dataset in a granular manner. This will persist during the tenure of the project. The backup service can be requested by flagging this in the application form for storage resources during regular calls.

Notice that datasets using the NIRD Data Lake service cannot opt in for the NIRD Backup service.

Please visit the user documentation for technical implementation details.
