  • Non-Sensitive Data Storage

    /home /home is a free 50GB space provided to users of the Rivanna HPC system and is visible from the Rivanna login and compute nodes. /home is the default working directory when logging on to Rivanna. Users can also access their home directory at /home/$USER, where $USER is an individual’s UVa computing ID. /scratch /scratch is a Lustre high performance parallel filesystem accessible via the Rivanna login and compute nodes.
  • Research Value Storage

    Overview UVa ITS offers several budget options for storing non-sensitive data. The Research Value NAS storage system provides users with a solution for research data storage and collaboration. Members in the same group have access to a shared directory created by the team lead or PI. Group membership can be defined and managed through ITS MyGroups system. Value storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and can also be accessed on a personal computer with an SMB mount, allowing for point-and-click file manipulation.
  • Sensitive Data Storage - Ivy

    Overview The Ivy secure computing environment meets both HIPAA- and CUI-compliance standards and is ideal for storing sensitive research data. Ivy offers several storage options to fit your research computing needs. Ivy Central Storage Ivy Central Storage (ICS) is a sensitive data parking zone and central storage pool with a capacity greater than 1PB. This storage space is available for researchers with highly sensitive data and can be mounted on an Ivy virtual machine (VM).
  • /project Storage

    Overview The /project file system provides users with a collaborative space for data storage and sharing. Members in the same group have access to a shared directory created by the team lead or PI. Group membership can be defined and managed through ITS MyGroups system. /project storage is mounted on the Rivanna HPC cluster and runs on a new scale-out NAS file system. How to request space in /project /project storage is available by request (via CADRE User Support page) for $90/TB/YR.
  • Computing Systems

    UVA Research Computing can help you find the right system for your computational workloads. From supercomputers to HIPAA secure systems to cloud-based deployments with advanced infrastructure, various systems are available to researchers. Rivanna HPC 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 Secure Platform A multi-platform, HIPAA-compliant system for secure data that includes dedicated virtual machines (Linux and Windows), Domino Data Lab, and Hadoop/Spark.

  • Storage for Researchers

    UVA Research Computing provides multi-tiered storage solutions for your data. From small-scale personal computing options to high-performance parallel file systems for serious computational runs, various systems are available to researchers.

    Large-Scale Research Data Storage UVa offers a number of institutional solutions for storing and managing large-scale research data. Each of these can serve different use-cases depending on budget and archival needs. All of these systems are mounted and visible to local high-performance computing resources.


  • 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?
