User Archive Directories (HPSS)

See this article in context within the following user guides: Data | Eos | Rhea | Titan

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.

User Archive Path

User archive directories are located at /home/$USER.

User Archive Access

User archive directories may be accessed only via specialized tools called HSI and HTAR. For more information on using HSI or HTAR, see the HSI and HTAR page.

User Archive Accounting

Each file and directory on HPSS is associated with an HPSS storage allocation. For information on storage allocation, please visit the Understanding HPSS Storage Allocations page.
