Reminder to be proactive with data

March 03, 2020

Please remember to periodically review the HPC data retention policy https://www.nrel.gov/hpc/data-retention-policy.html. NREL HPC has only a certain level of responsibility to manage the data that is associated with your research.  Critical data should be routinely backed up and moved via Globus.

Project data in MSS will be retained for 15 months after the project allocation ends, which is 1 year after the 3 month period during which project data is retained on the /projects filesystem. After this retention period, we reserve the right to delete files if we need to reclaim storage.  We can make special arrangements for permanent storage, if needed.
