  2. Resource Description
    "The PMACS HPC houses 1.8 Petabtyes (1,800 Terabytes) of disk storage. Some of this storage is used for system utility functions; however most of the storage (about 80%) is available for the storage and processing of HPC jobs. Data is accessible via both NFS (Linux/Unix/Mac) and CIFS (Windows) drive shares. Shares can be mapped to client desktops, laptops, as well as biomedical equipment, such as high-throughput sequencers capable of mapping NFS and/or CIFS shares. Once data exists on the PMACS HPC disk storage it is then accessible by the compute cores and queue management software, and can become part of computational jobs. Storage rates apply to any data stored whether short or long-term. Rates are calculated regularly throughout the month. <strong>Disk storage costs do not include backup services. Data protection included in disk storage costs is based upon a technology called Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) which protects data should a drive or drives in the system fail. Backup services are available, however backup services incur the “Archive/Backup Storage” rate detailed below, and are on an as-requested basis. </strong>"
