Abstract: In this paper we describe the challenges of tiered storage systems using tape as a storage tier and how these challenges can be addressed when combining iRODS and IBM Spectrum Archive Enterprise Edition. We demonstrate how to prevent transparent recalls when migrated files are accessed through iRODS and instead perform tape optimized recalls with IBM Spectrum Archive. Furthermore, we demonstrate configuring quota in iRODS that applies to the disk and tape storage tiers. And we demonstrate harvesting metadata from the file content and using this for subsequent searches.
