  • Research Standard Storage

    Overview Research Computing offers several budget options for storing public and internal use research data. Information Security at UVA provides details about data sensitivity
    classifications.
    The Research Standard storage provides users with a solution for research data storage and collaboration. Members in the same group have access to a shared directory created by
    the team lead or PI. Group membership can be defined and managed through Grouper (requires VPN connection). Research Standard storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and can also be accessed on a personal computer with an SMB
    mount, allowing for point-and-click file manipulation.
    If you are not a researcher, UVA ITS offers Value storage for long-term storage of large scale data.

  • Public and Moderately Sensitive Data Storage

    /home /home is a free 50GB space provided to users of the Rivanna HPC system and is visible from the Rivanna login and compute nodes. /home is the default working directory when logging on to Rivanna. Users can also access their home directory at /home/$USER, where $USER is an individual’s UVa computing ID.
    /scratch /scratch is a Lustre high performance parallel filesystem accessible via the Rivanna login and compute nodes.
    Rivanna’s scratch file system has a limit of 10TB per user. This policy is in place to guarantee the stability and performance of the scratch file system. Scratch is intended as a temporary work directory.

  • Research Project Storage

    Overview The Research Project Storage file system provides users with a collaborative space for data storage and sharing. Members in the same group have access to a shared directory created by the team lead or PI. Group membership can be defined and managed through the Grouper (requires VPN connection). /project storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and runs on a new scale-out NAS file system.
    How to request /project storage space
    /project storage can be purchased for $60
    /TB/YR by using this form. When filling out the form, the PI can specify the size of the /project directory and the name of an existing or new Grouper group that can access this space.
