Data Storage Standards


Group Space Storage Type
Each group is provided with space that contains their project member's home directories, a shared directory for files used within the project, and a public directory for files to be shared outside the project. See our storage document for more information including quota sizing. Each user has a home directory that resides within their group directory. Home directories do not have individual quotas. All users within a group share the group space quota.

Scratch Space Storage Type
Scratch space is provided on all systems. This space is not allocated, but meant to be used at run time during the course of a calculation. This space is of temporary nature, and files are deleted after a specified retention period following creation.
