The storage on the cluster is split into two types:
- Home filestore
- Lustre Parallel filestore
The home filestore contains your home folder (the folder you are in when you log in). This is a relatively small disk that is intended to store your important files (e.g. source codeor other files that cannot be regenerated if lost).
We are investigating the possibility of providing a backup facility for this filestore.
The default quota on this disk is 10Gb.
Lustre Parallel FIlestore
The Lustre filestore is a high-performance parallel filesystem with a much larger capacity. This filestore is designed to store the larger data files used in parallel computations. This filestore can be accessed via a link called ‘lustre’ in your home folder.
This filestore is not backed up.
The default quota on this disk is 100Gb.
