Using and managing HPSS storage allocations

This 35-minute video of a March 2018 presentation by CSG's Patrick Nichols helps users get the most from their High Performance Storage System (HPSS) allocations.

Participants will learn how to manage their workflows to avoid overspending storage allocations, and what to do if their transfers fail because they’ve reached their storage limits. Topics also include deciding when data should (and should not) be archived to HPSS; how to archive large data sets efficiently; and how best to retrieve and archive files depending on the location of the user’s processes.
