DE users can request dataset copy to a tape endpoint at GridKa, named FZK-LCG2_LOCALGROUPTAPE. This is intended for cases such as:

  • critical datasets and critical phase of analysis, you want to make sure a 2nd copy of these datasets is available
  • old but important datasets (reference for paper, thesis, etc). Put copy on tape to free space on disk endpoint

For transfer/access of the datasets on FZK-LCG2_LOCALGROUPTAPE you can use the standard DQ2/Rucio tools.
