ITaP maintains several different storage resources to accompany computational systems. Here is a brief introduction to research storage resources. More information and detailed documentation are available for each resource listed below. For a broader overview of all storage options available to students, faculty, and staff at Purdue, please look at this guide from Purdue Libraries:
Globus is a powerful and easy to use file transfer service that for transferring files virtually anywhere. It works within ITaP's various research storage systems; it connects between ITaP and remote research sites running Globus; and it connects research systems to personal systems. Easily share data with collaborators around the world, with dropbox-like simplicity!
As with the community clusters, research labs will be able to easily purchase capacity in the Data Depot through the Data Depot Purchase page on this site. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Home Directory spaces currently reside on a self-contained GPFS storage system that provides redundant, high-availability disk space and is a central component of ITaP's research systems infrastructure.
Information about many retired storage resources is available on the Retired Resources page.
