Your Home Directories for all RCAC resources is provided by a DDN GS7KX filesystem appliance.

/home, the primary space used to permanently hold files for a given user, has a 25 GB quota which can be monitored at any time by using a myquota command.

Home Directories spaces currently reside on a self-contained ZFS storage system that provides redundant, high-availability disk space and is a central component of RCAC's research systems infrastructure.

RCAC uses network attached storage (NAS) appliances from DDN to provide scale-out Home Directories space to cluster systems. This storage is reliable, backed-up (via snapshots), and is globally available on all RCAC systems. Your Home Directories is medium-performance, non-purged space suitable for tasks like sharing data, editing files, developing and building software, and many other uses.

Your Home Directories is not designed or intended for use as high-performance working space for running jobs.
