Center Storage

Centre storage, as defined by SNIC, is a storage solution that lives independently of the computational resources and can be accessed from all such resources at a centre. Key features include the ability to access the same filesystem the same way on all computational resources at a centre, and a unified structure and nomenclature for all centra. Unlike cluster storage which is tightly associated with a single cluster, and thus has a limited life-time, centre storage does not require the users to migrate their own data when clusters are decommissioned, not even when the storage hardware itself is being replaced.

  • Please read the general information how to apply for allocations on SNIC resources.
  • Applications for SMALL and MEDIUM allocations can be submitted at any time. 
  • Applications for SMALL allocations can be submitted by an employee at a Swedish university or university college (e.g., PhD student or higher).
  • Applications for MEDIUM allocations can be submitted by a senior scientist in Swedish academia, at least at the level of assistant professor (forskarassistent).
  • Applications are evaluated by the SNIC Storage and Service Coordinators. The evaluation process will normally finish in two weeks.

Note: An activity report can be requested from the PI of the MEDIUM allocation after the project allocation has ended.
