User disk space at CCR is contained in a high-performance
Network Attached Storage (NAS). CCR's NAS
provides a total of 3 PB of disk storage to the general compute
cluster and other servers at CCR. Directories are available
via the GPFS client on the cluster front end and all compute
Home directories are in /gpfs/user.
UB faculty members are entitled to a shared project directory on
the NAS. This directory is accessible by everyone in your
UNIX group and available everywhere the home directories are.
Faculty are allocated a default of 200GB of space but the quota can
be increased to 1TB without charge. Additional storage is
available for purchase. Please contact ccr-help
to request a project directory for your group.
The new IBM GPFS storage solution is in production. Please replace /ifs, /panfs and /panasas with /gpfs in your scripts or anywhere on this website that you see /ifs, /panfs, or /panasas referenced.
We're now using the SLURM scheduler. If you need to update your job scripts from PBS format, this is a great cheatsheet for comparing commands between the two schedulers. Click here for more info about using SLURM at CCR.
