Managing massive data storage repositories is one of the most important problems to solve in virtual research environments, where the complexity of handling large volumes of data involves providing a high degree of control to ensure that data are located properly and are permanently available for processing. This paper discusses the innovative creation of a massive storage system at a highperformance computer center, which uses the advantages of hierarchical storage for an efficient management of information and a proper utilization of available storage resources. Research results seek to meet the needs of researchers who need to store files resulting from tasks performed on distributed resources, without a concern about technical details of the storage technologies used.
