The cluster has several storage areas available
  • Local Scratch Space

    Any scratch space on the nodes is mounted under /scratchXX. This space is not backed up and should not be used to store critical research code or results. It's intended for staging of data sets before processing.

  • Home Directory Space

    Each resource in the cluster has local home directory service. Home directories are backed up and should contain only end results of your research and working code. Please do not run process data sets stored in your home directory, stage your data to local scratch space first.

  • Project Storage

    Project space may be supplied by the project as a set of external storage trays (tau/ceti), or may be nfs provided from another location (nfs on playclub).
