Storage Types – Tier 0
Tier 0 is built on the Lustre parallel filesystem. Tier 0 filesystems provide high data redundancy and moderate-to-high performance. Tier 0 also provides Starfish data management web access for most shares, and Globus transfer access for all shares.
This tier is generally performant enough to use for hundreds of clustered compute jobs simultaneously and is typically the class of storage used for general cluster storage shares.
To request a new allocation or update exiting allocations
please refer to the Storage Service Center Document.
Tier 0 servers are located in our Holyoke and Boston datacenters.
Tier 0 is highly redundant and does not offer snapshots. If you accidentally delete a file from Tier 0 storage, there is no way to recover it. If you require user-accessible snapshots, please see Tier 1.
Disaster Recovery Information
Tier 0 is highly redundant and does not offer backups. If you accidentally delete files from Tier 0 storage, there is no way to recover it. If you require disaster recovery backups, please see Tier 1 or Tier 2.
