Mimer C3SE 40 000 1 000 000 GiB The preferred project storage resource for Alvis. Currently only available from Alvis.
Currently only available from Alvis. This is the preferred project storage resource for Alvis.

Project storage attached to Alvis, dedicated for AI/ML

Mimer is an all-flashed based storage system based on as solution from WEKA IO. It consists of an 0.6 PB all-flash tier and a 7 PB Ceph based bulk storage tier (with spinning disk).

Centre Storage NSC 50 000 1 200 000 GiB Storage on Centre Storage at NSC for compute projects allocated time on NSC resources.
Centre Storage @ NSC is designed for fast access from compute resources at NSC. The purpose is to provide storage for active data for NAISS compute projects allocated time on compute resources at NSC. Apply for a file quota of 1 million files unless you have a good motivation for more.

Project storage for NAISS as well as LiU Local projects with compute allocations on resources hosted by NSC.

Centre Storage @ NSC is designed for fast access from compute resources at NSC. It consists of one IBM ESS GL6S building block and one IBM ESS 5000 SC4 building block.

In total there are 946 spinning hard disks and a small number of NVRAM devices and SSDs which act as a cache to speed up small writes. The total disk space that is usable for storing files is approximately 6.9 PiB.

Klemming PDC 100 000 1 000 000 GiB Storage attached to Dardel at PDC
Storage for active data used by projects with compute allocations on Dardel. More information about project directories in Klemming can be found at https://www.pdc.kth.se/support/documents/data_management/klemming.html.

Project storage for NAISS as well as PDC projects with compute allocations on resources hosted by PDC.

Klemming is designed for fast access from compute resources at PCD. It uses the Lustre parallel file system, which is optimized for handling data from many clients at the same time. The total size of Klemming is 12 PB.

dCache Swestore 100 1 000 TiB

Swestore is a Research Data Storage Infrastructure, intended for active research data and operated by the National Academic Infrastructure for Supercomputing in Sweden, NAISS,

The storage resources provided by Swestore are made available for free for academic research funded by VR and Formas through open calls such that the best Swedish research is supported and new research is facilitated.

The purpose of Swestore allocations, granted by National Allocations Committee (NAC), is to provide large scale data storage for “live” or “working” research data, also known as active research data.

See the documentation at: https://docs.swestore.se
Crex 1 UPPMAX 100 000 3 000 000 GiB UPPMAX storage system attached to Rackham and Snowy, suitable for active data.
UPPMAX storage system attached to Rackham and Snowy, suitable for active data. Only apply if you have a Compute project or proposal at UPPMAX. Not suitable for long-term data storage. Crex will be decommissioned on 2024-12-31. All data remaining on the system on that date will be lost. See https://www.uppmax.uu.se/uppmax-news/?tarContentId=1069594 Backup is available. Use "nobackup" in directory names to exempt data from backup. Note: Allocations on Crex are decided strictly on a monthly basis. Proposals submitted after the 23rd are decided the following month. See this page for detailed information: https://www.uppmax.uu.se/support/getting-started/applying-for-storage/

Active data storage for Rackham projects. Primarily for life science projects.
