Data Management for the AI Testbed
Home File System Space
Users have a shared home filesystem
/home shared across the ALCF AI testbed systems, including the login and compute nodes. Default user quota is
1 TB storage and
1,000,000 files. This space is backed up.
Project File System Space
The team project/campaign file system
/projects is intended to facilitate project collaboration and is accessible to the team members of your project that have an ALCF account. Default group storage quota is
2 TB and
2,000,000 files. Please note that this space isn't backed up. Our policy is that data will be purged from disk 6 months after project completion.
Users can transfer data to and from the AI testbed using
Globus or tools such as
We have a Globus endpoint each to move data to and from the
/home filesystem respectively.
Relevant information regarding using globus can be found here
