Storage on the Cluster

Where is data stored

 

This storage is accessible from within the UNIL network using the SMB/CIFS protocol.

The UNIL HPC clusters also have dedicated storage that is shared amongst the compute nodes but this is not, in general, accessible outside of the clusters  except via file transfer protocols (scp)

Cluster filesystems

 The cluster storage is based on the IBM Spectrum Scale (GFPS) parallel filesystem.

 The role of each filesystem as well as details of the data retention policy is given below.
