Data storage

Types of storage

There are several types of storage available depending on the nature and intended use of the data.

  • /tigress
    /tigress is a shared disk resource for Della, Perseus, Tiger and Tigressdata. It is suitable for storing the output of programs or data that may need to be processed on another system.
  • Scratch
    Several types of scratch disk are available on each cluster. /scratch exists on every node to facilitate private writes; /scratch/network is space for data that needs to be shared between nodes in a serial fashion; and /scratch/gpfs is available to all nodes when data is being written in parallel.
  • DataSpace
    Dataspace offers long-term storage and publication options for datasets, visualizations or reports.
