CTSC begins engagement with DKIST Data Center

The DKIST Data Center (NSF AST-0946422) is the operations data management and processing center for the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), which at the time of its scheduled completion in 2019 will be the largest solar telescope in the world. The data center team has the challenge of managing the terabytes of data coming in daily from the summit in Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii to the data center facility in Boulder, Colorado. With assistance from CTSC, the DKIST Data Center team plans to develop a cybersecurity program that will help them focus appropriately on the Integrity, Availability and Confidentiality of the data and services in support of DKIST.
