File system status and data storage resources

GLADE file spaces | Data storage resources

The tables below provide basic facts about the GLADE file spaces and two different resources for storing data: NCAR Campaign Storage and the High Performance Storage System (HPSS). For more information, see GLADECampaign Storage, or HPSS.


GLADE file spaces

See GLADE File Spaces for detailed information on use and policies regarding those spaces.

The /glade directories in some output (from pwd, for example) are identified as /gpfs. CISL recommends using /glade in pathnames, as it is less likely to change in the future.
