CESNET, the Czech national research and education network provider, does not only provide plain network connectivity. CESNET coordinates and builds e-infrastructure services nowadays. Among them, national storage facility is being put into operation. The aim of the project is to provide more than 15PB of storage in three geographically distributed data centers for research and science community. Storage center in Pilsen with a starting set of access protocols now begins to operate. We present challenges, design choices, future plans as well as consequences for HEP community in the Czech Republic.
