Storage

A variety of storage resources are available in the Feig group. This page provides information on each location, its usage and backup policy, and how much space is left.

Home and data directories

Some user home directories are located on the local disks of lab workstations. All other home directories are kept on the central NFS server blue5. Home directories are fully backed up nightly. Last night's copy is accessible under /backup/<machinename> (workstation home directories) and /backup/home (home directories on blue5).

Storage

There are a number of large RAID arrays for storage of simulation data generated on the cluster. It can be accessed from all machines in the Feig lab. s1, s2, s61, s62 are for writing output from running jobs. s3, s3x, s4, s51, s52, s53, s54 are for longer-term storage. All storage arrays use RAID technology to prevent data loss in case of drive failures.

Backups

Home directories are backed up automatically onto /backup. A secondary backup of home directories is made once a week onto /feigstore.
