There are different backup policies and characteristics on Triton's three data storage systems. This page describes the complete policies in effect at this time. If your project requires greater capacity or reliability than provided in this policy, please contact the Triton staff with details. Every effort will be made to accomodate your needs.
Home areas on Triton are located on Solaris-based NFS servers using ZFS as the underlying file system. There are 36 terabytes of space in the Home Storage system for all users.
Triton has a parallel file system (PFS) known as Data Oasis. It contains about 800 terabytes of shared scratch space available to all users.
A small scratch space is available to all users. This comprises approximately 5 gigabytes per node of available storage only during job runs. It is purged between jobs.
