Adding Disk Space to /scratch and /data

Posted by on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 in Website.

Beginning at noon today we will be adding a few hundred TB of additional disk space to our gpfs23 filesystem (which includes /scratch and /data). It is possible that this may cause some sluggishness on the cluster for an hour or so. Tonight we will then kick off a migration to redistribute data to these new disks. We will throttle this migration so that it does not impact performance.

Groups wanting to increase their quotas on /scratch or /data should submit a request through iLab. Please note that we will not be adjusting default quotas on /home or /scratch for individual users, i.e. the additional space is available for purchase only.
