For high performance database services JSC uses Oracle Database Software. The Oracle Data Guard extension is used to keep a standby version of active databases to ensure high availability. Databases are, e.g., used for accounting, management of high performance computing (HPC) resource quotas, administration of JuNet IP-addresses and registration of project proposals requesting HPC resources. Furthermore, the databases are employed for recording large amounts of data generated during particular experiments for later processing.
