Phoenix Project Storage Quotas Begin March 31

As previously announced, we have applied quotas to Phoenix project storage today based on each faculty PI’s choice. You can run the pace-quota command to check your research group’s utilization and quota at any time. Project storage quotas on Phoenix are set for a faculty member’s research group, not for individual users. Each user also has 10 GB of home storage and 15 TB of short-term scratch storage (not backed up).

You can learn more about Phoenix storage at http://docs.pace.gatech.edu/phoenix_cluster/storage_phnx/. April will be the first month where storage quotas incur charges for PIs choosing quotas beyond the 1 TB funded by the Institute.

If your research group exceeds your quota, you will not be able to write to your project storage, and jobs running in your project storage may fail. We are in the process of directly contacting all users in storage projects over quota today.

Please contact PACE Support with any questions about Phoenix project storage quotas. Faculty may also choose to contact their PACE Research Scientist liaison.

We’d like to remind you that storage quotas on Phoenix project storage will be set one week from today, on March 31.

You can run the pace-quota command to check your research group’s utilization at any time. Your PI/faculty sponsor is choosing the quota that will be set, based on your group’s storage needs.  You can learn more about Phoenix storage at http://docs.pace.gatech.edu/phoenix_cluster/storage_phnx/.

After quotas are set on March 31, we will notify all users, and you will be able to see your quota via pace-quota.

Users and faculty should contact their PACE Research Scientist liaison or PACE Support with any questions about Phoenix project storage quotas.

 

[Original Post]

As part of completing the migration to Phoenix, we will set quotas on Phoenix project storage on March 31, ending the period of unlimited project storage. Project storage quotas on Phoenix are set for a faculty member’s research group, not for individual users. Each user also has 10 GB of home storage and 15 TB of short-term scratch storage (not backed up).

PACE’s free tier offers 1 TB of Institute-funded project storage to GT faculty. Faculty members must fund additional storage beginning with the month of April. PACE has provided faculty members with Phoenix storage allocations (except those recently created) with information regarding their group’s storage needs. Users can contact their advisors if they have concerns about their allocation.

All users can run the “pace-quota” command on Phoenix to see their research group’s storage usage. Quotas will generally show as unlimited (zero) until March 31.

Please contact us at pace-support@oit.gatech.edu with any questions about Phoenix project storage.
