Data Storage

Data Storage

Amarel owners may purchase project storage consistent with research needs for $150/TB (price subject to change). A 1TB GPFS fileset is included with the first Amarel node purchased. A fileset is a subtree of a file system namespace that in many respects behaves like an independent file system and can be shared among all accounts supported by an owner. A 100GB home directory is created for each owner-supported user account. All included and purchased storage includes backup, but high-speed scratch is not backed up.

The high-performance /scratch filesystem is local to the compute nodes that a job uses. Amarel GPFS Storage is distributed across CICnet, the Rutgers research network.

For further information on data storage usage and best practices, see the File Set section of the User Guide.
