Storage

Each PI group is provided with storage space for research data on the HPC clusters. The storage is separated into three tiers: home, project, and temporary scratch.

Home

Home storage is designed for reliability, rather than performance. Do not use this space for routine computation. Use this space to store your scripts, notes, etc. Home storage is backed up daily.

Project

In general, project storage is intended to be the primary storage location for HPC research data in active use. Project storage is not backed up.

60-Day Scratch (scratch60)

This temporary storage should typically give you the best performance. Files older than 60 days will be deleted automatically. This space is not backed up, and you may be asked to delete files younger than 60 days old if this space fills up.

Other Storage Options

If you or your group finds these quotas don't accommodate your needs, contact us at hpc@yale.edu.

You can also mount Storage@Yale, which is a service offered by Yale ITS to University members. Note that S@Y mounted on a cluster will not be available to be mounted elsewhere. To request S@Y mounted on the clusters, fill out our S@Y Request Form.
