Résif seismological data center

Data distribution and archiving are supported by the Résif national data center (Résif-DC), located in Grenoble, and co-operated by Institut des Sciences de la Terre (ISTerre), Observatoire de Grenoble (OSUG) and Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA).

Securing seismological data

Résif-DC is committed to host securely all seismological data from Résif-SI.

The responsibility for the data security is transferred from the data producers to the data center as soon as the transaction associated with the data transfer is terminated successfully. With this responsibility, Résif-DC has the right to take all necessary operations that would not modify the data in order to guarantee it’s security.

The data are hosted on the SUMMER storage platform in shared data centers of UGA. Data services are hosted on virtualization platforms of OSUG and UGA (WINTER). The network infrastructures are managed by UGA.

Through a partnership with CC-IN2P3 in Lyon, Résif-DC also stores a complete cold backup of the data archive to the CC-IN2P3 distant mass storage service. This backup is refreshed twice a year.

Distributing seismological data

Seismological data is distributed in the FDSN standards, mainly through web services.

Realtime data streams are distributed with the seedlink protocol.

Providing online services

Résif-DC also develops and host a collection of services to the enduser.
