  • Ivy Domino Data Lab (DDL) Quick Start

    Domino Data Lab (DDL) provides a central environment and features for data science projects including project management, collaboration with team members, and setting up hardware configuration for a project. Account Request Access to DDL to Ivy is managed through the Ivy account request process. Accounts are issued on a per project basis, with PIs (and any project members) being granted individual accounts to log into the DDL platform. Once the request has been approved and all associated members have completed the necessary documentation, each individual project member can sign into DDL with his / her UVa Eservices user name and password.

  • Globus Data Transfer

    Globus - Unified access to your research data, across all systems, using any existing identity. Systems such as: Laptops HPC clusters Lab / departmental storage Tape archives and Cloud storage Access them all using just a web browser. This can help you share research data with colleagues, co-investigators, or to move data back and forth between a lab workstation and Rivanna or your personal computer. Data stored at a different institution?
  • Storage for Researchers

    The following storage options are available through CADRE, UVA’s Computation and Data Resource Exchange.

    UVA Research Computing provides multi-tiered storage solutions for your data. From the individual cloud storage solution for your personal computing to the high-performance parallel file system for serious computational runs, various storage solutions are available for your need. In order to help you find the right storage, let’s start with one simple question: Is your data research data?


  • Get Started with HPC

    HPC at UVA is available in two security environments: Rivanna - Standard Security A traditional high performance cluster with job scheduler, large file system, modules, and MPI processing. Please see the ARCS page for how to begin working in Rivanna. Get Started on Rivanna Ivy - High Security A multi-platform, HIPAA-compliant system for secure data that includes dedicated virtual machines (Linux and Windows), Domino Data Lab, and Hadoop/Spark.
