3. UK-RDF File Systems

The UK-RDF hosts a number of different file systems for different purposes. this section provides an overview of the different file systems and their use cases.

3.1 ARCHER File Systems: /epsrc, /nerc, /general

The ARCHER file systems are mounted on the login and post-processing nodes of the ARCHER national supercomputing facility as well as the UK-RDF DTNs and data analystic cluster.

These file systems are designed to allow:

  • the easy transfer of data resulting from calculations on ARCHER to the UK-RDF for further analysis and/or wider sharing;
  • the hosting of large data sets required on ARCHER;
  • a wide range of different computational pipelines involving multiple resources.
