Persistent Group Storage Overview

ITaP Research Computing offered shared research group storage available from all research clusters or directly usable from labs at a competitive price.

Group Storage was a shared resource group storage available from all research clusters. It was retired in 2014.

ITaP served Persistent Group Storage from EMC Isilon network attached storage (NAS) servers with a total capacity of 3 PB. This storage was redundant and reliable, featured nightly snapshots for the last week, and was globally available on all ITaP research systems. Persistent Group Storage was medium-performance, non-purged space suitable for tasks such as sharing data, editing files, developing and building software, and many other uses.
