Storage

/ufrc/soltis

  • We currently have 50TB of space
    • We will can add more storage, but /ufrc storage is $140/TB/yr, so not cheap!
  • Each user has their own directory
  • The /ufrc/soltis/share/ folder can be used for sharing, common data, etc.
  • If you have important data that you need regular access to and this should be backed up, keep it in /ufrc/soltis/share/Soltis_Backup/. This is the only location on /ufrc/soltis that is backed up in any way.

/orange/soltis

  • The /orange filesystem is somewhat slower than /ufrc, so not best for active data used in running jobs.
  • We currently have 52TB of space.
  • Each user can create their own directory.
  • This is a great place to archive data you are not actively working on.
  • It is much cheaper than /ufrc–only $25/TB/yr.
  • One copy of all raw sequence data should go in /orange/soltis/SequenceBackup.
    • This folder is backed up nightly.
  • If you have important data that you do not access regularly, you can put it in /orange/soltis/Backup_and_archive

Storage Backup

As noted above, the ONLY places that are backed up in any way are:

  • /ufrc/soltis/share/Soltis_Backup/: Use for¬†important data that you need regular access to and this should be backed up.
  • /orange/soltis/Backup_and_archive/: Use for important data that you do not access regularly.
  • /home: Research Computing does maintain a daily snapshot of your home directory for one week. See this video for accessing your snapshots.
  • /orange/soltis/SequenceBackup: For archiving raw sequence data. Should be set to read only to minimize accidental data changes.
