/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 $USER is an individual’s UVa computing ID.
/scratch /scratch is a Lustre high performance parallel filesystem accessible via the Rivanna login and compute nodes. All Rivanna HPC users are granted 10TB for free and can access this space within Rivanna at /scratch/$USER, where $USER is an individual’s UVa computing ID. The /scratch directory is not intended for long-term data storage.
