Reminder of Eagle Data Storage Policies for FY21 projects that ended on 9/30/2021

Nov. 12, 2021

Users are always strongly encouraged to remove any data on Eaglefs that is not needed, to benefit other users of this shared resource. Eaglefs consists of /shared-projects, /datasets, /scratch and /projects.

In summary, data in /projects for allocations that end on 9/30/2021 will be purged after 12/31/2021.

Users may continue to log in to HPC systems for a period of 3 months after the project enters the Expired state to move relevant data off of HPC primary storage (primarily /projects/<project_handle>) to another storage location. The ability to write new data to /projects has been disabled for those projects that have expired.

Updated instructions on how to archive data using AWS MSS (Mass Storage System) are now available at: https://www.nrel.gov/hpc/mass-storage-system.html.

Users may continue to request MSS files that have been archived, for a period of 15 months after the files have been initially archived. Eagle's /scratch files have a policy of potentially being purged if not accessed within 28 days.
