Hi Frank,

The goal of DataVault is to centralize, preserve and provide persistent and reliable access to the simulation data generated from Einstein Toolkit.

Hopefully this helps.

What are the type of data you do target besides the waveform data? The
latter is important without doubt, but I could imagine a repository of
general simulation data could be quite interesting, especially if it
does contain a little more than the wave data, i.e. matter quantities
for simulations that contain those.

If this is still quite in the open (it did sound like that): what are
the constraints the project has, especially concerning disk space and
online bandwidth / data limits? And speaking of which: will it be
possible to run self-written analysis on existing data "close to the
data", i.e. without downloading it?
