In Phase I of DataONE the Distributed Data and Storage Working Group defined lower-level cyberinfrastructure services and service interfaces for the DataONE team and Member Nodes to direct and control data storage, movement, placement, and replication. The working group also performed technology assessment and roadmap activities associated with issues of distributed storage and federated storage and provided guidance to DataONE on optimization techniques and heuristics for maintaining 1) reliability of data storage, 2) performance of data access, and 3) preservation of data into the future.
