Block storage provides storage space as a container that is mounted in a virtual machine on the ESX environment of RHRK as a virtual hard disk. No snapshots are possible here, a backup has to be provided separately.
NAS storage provides the highest quality of service. It is a share (CIFS + NFS) on which files can be stored. The storage system is redundant, offers automatic snapshots to quickly access older versions or deleted files. In addition, all data is regularly backed up multiple times to cover the greatest possible case of error.
HPC storage is made available to HPC users directly in the HPC cluster Elwetritsch to increase the capacity for calculations in AHRP projects and / or to store data for longer periods of time.
FDM storage is ideal for large volumes of large files (10 TB minimum) with little random I/O. Possible applications are research projects that generate large amounts of data and need to store it for several years. Please contact us regarding your requirements.
