Users are also provided with user-centric archival space on the High Performance Storage System (HPSS).
User archive areas on HPSS are intended for storage of data not immediately needed in either User Home directories (NFS) or User Work directories (Lustre®). User Archive areas also serve as a location for users to store backup copies of user files. User Archive directories should not be used to store project-related data. Rather, Project Archive directories should be used for project data.
