NEC Cluster Disk Storage (vulcan)
Users' HOME directories are located on a shared RAID system and are mounted via NFS on all login (frontend) and compute nodes. The path to the HOME directories is consistent across all nodes. The filesystem space on HOME is limited by a quota (50GB per user, 200GB per group) and will be shared with the resources hawk, vulcan, vulcan2! The quota usage for your account and your groups can be listed by command na_quota available on the login nodes.
For large files and fast I/O, please use
It's a fast distributed cluster filesystem using the infiniband network infrastructure. This filesystem is available on alle nodes and on the frontend/loging nodes.
- The capacity on vulcan is ~500TByte, the bandwith is about 6 GB/sec. The system consists of 2 MDS servers, 2 OSS servers and 16 OST storage targets, each of them one RAID6 lun, 8+PQ, 4 TB disks.
- The capacity on vulcan2 is ~500TByte, the bandwith is about 6 GB/sec. The system consists of 2 MDS servers, 2 OSS servers and 16 OST storage targets, each of them one RAID6 lun, 8+PQ, 4 TB disks.
Scratch directories are available on all compute and login (frontend) nodes via the workspace mechanism.
IMPORTANT! NO BACKUP!! There is NO backup done of any user data located on HWW Cluster systems. The only protection of your data is the redundant disk subsystem. This RAID system is able to handle a failure of one component. There is NO way to recover inadvertently removed data. Users have to backup critical data on their local site!
