  • 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 and 350,000 files 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.
  • Sensitive Data Storage - Ivy

    Overview The Ivy secure computing environment meets both HIPAA- and CUI-compliance standards and is ideal for storing highly sensitive research data. Ivy offers several storage options to fit your research computing needs. Ivy Central Storage Ivy Central Storage (ICS) is a highly 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 Ivy request form.
