SC provides centralized file storage via ZFS file system. The system provides a RAID-based storage to ensure against the loss of two disk drives.
Share file system provides home directories and research space for all desktops and pamd.
- Users have a fixed disk quota (see below) on their home directory,
which is based on our current backup capacity. As our backup capacity

- Users have other options if more disk space is needed than is
available in their home directory.
Files over 500 MB are not backed up.
Users wishing to protect local files can save these files to the shared file system by mounting their user volume locally (via Samba, sshfs, scp, rsync or other mechanisms) and copying the important files to this directory.
No archival data beyond 21 days is maintained.
The backup system consists of a 10 TB iSCSI configured in Raid 5 with a hot spare with a Dell 1950 acting as the hosting node. Backups are accomplished with rsync.
