Lake is FMI’s new general purpose data storage server. It can be accessed on the FMI servers as well as from anywhere on the internet. CSC is using the same system, which is called Allas. Many researchers are already familiar to this system. From the technical point of view, Lake is a modern object storage system (with an S3 interface). This means that instead of files, the data is stored as objects in buckets. So using the system is a bit different from normal file system. This kind of system is widely used in IT world. For example Amazon AWS relies on this heavily.
