Hi Tim,

I'm afraid I don't have the answer to your question, but I am forwarding
your message to the ome-devel mailing list
(https://www.openmicroscopy.org/site/community/mailing-lists) as that is
the best place for this sort of discussion.

Dear Melissa, OME team.

I run the bioimaging facilities here at Durham University and we have
OMERO setup and running on our a DeLL server rack, 15TB. We do not
want to use this for very long term storage however.
If possible we would like to identify those entries in the database
which are of a certain age and back these up on to another system,
leaving this server for more current working datasets.

Is it possible to do this within omero, can we splice out older
entries regularly to a separate database for example. Can Omero
automate this?

I have an IT committee meeting tomorrow at 2pm, if you could give me
an idea if this is feasible before then that would be fantastic.

Best wishes
