NOTES

The purchase of at least one node also provides access to the following storage capabilities:

  1. Persistent user storage: NFS‐based (BlueArc), 2GB quota per group.
  2. Persistent group storage: NFS‐based (BlueArc), 2TB quota provided upon request to HPC/HTC support.
  3. Purged NFS xdisk storage: 25TB total for all users (no individual quotas). Subject to purge two
    weeks after last access.
  4. Purged xdisk storage: Luster‐based (DDN) parallel file system with high bandwidth interconnect to compute nodes. 100TB total for all users (no individual quotas). Subject to purge two weeks after last access.

Researchers that require additional persistent storage space can purchase it for a one‐time capital cost of $1500/TB (TBR). As with compute nodes, the storage is operated for three years from the purchase date and then must be renewed or the data relocated.
