  • HPC Storage

    There are a variety of options for storing large-scale research data at UVa. Non-sensitive data storage systems can be accessed from the Rivanna high performance computing system. .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-color:#ccc;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;border-color:#ccc;color:#333;background-color:#fff;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;border-color:#ccc;color:#333;background-color:#f0f0f0;} .tg .tg-hy9w{background-color:#eceeef;border-color:inherit;vertical-align:top} .tg .tg-dc35{background-color:#f9f9f9;border-color:inherit;vertical-align:top} .tg .tg-0qmj{font-weight:bold;background-color:#eceeef;border-color:inherit;vertical-align:top} Non-Sensitive Data Storage Name Quota Price Data Protection Accessible from Best Practices /home 50GB Free 3-week snapshot Rivanna login and compute nodes /home is best used as a working directory when using Rivanna interactively. SLURM jobs run against /home will be slower than those run against /scratch. /scratch 10TB Free Data removed 90 days after last file modification timestamp Rivanna login and compute nodes /scratch is a high performance parallel filesystem that is suitable for large scale computational work.
  • Sensitive Data Storage - Ivy

    Overview The Ivy secure computing environment meets both HIPAA- and CUI-compliance standards and is ideal for storing sensitive research data. Ivy offers several storage options to fit your research computing needs. Ivy Central Storage Ivy Central Storage (ICS) is a sensitive data parking zone and central storage pool with a capacity greater than 1PB. This storage space is available for researchers with highly sensitive data and can be mounted on an Ivy virtual machine (VM). For added security, files stored on ICS are read & write only. Executable files can be moved from ICS to VM storage. Researchers can request space on ICS by first requesting an Ivy account using the form on the CADRE website.
  • /project Storage

    Overview The /project 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 ITS MyGroups system. /project storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and runs on a new scale-out NAS file system. How to request space in /project /project storage is available by request (via CADRE User Support page) for $90/TB/YR. When filling out the form, the PI can specify the size of the /project directory and the name of an existing or new MyGroup that can access this space.
