We are currently backing up User's home directories for a period of ONE Month after which, the disk space will be recycled.
We have deployed a large DLT (digital linear tape) tape backup system using Oracle StorEdge L1400 tape library. We have implemented a backup and retrieval strategy of user files located in each users home directory (i.e., all files/directories referenced by the $HOME environment variable).
Check out the Software Page for information about available packages.
HPCVL also has portable data storage solutions available for users that have very large data but limited bandwidth. Please see Portable Storage Sollutions for more information.
