Update on Data Oasis expansion As of April 5, 2013, we have completed the expansion of the SDSC Data Oasis projects space and the new filesystem is now available in production on both Gordon and Trestles (mount point is /oasis/projects/nsf). Details of the filesystem are available in the Data Oasis user guide. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
Expansion and Policy Changes The /oasis/projects/nsf file system is available on Gordon is a non-purged resource intended for data associated with an allocation on these systems. Project Storage is provided on a per-project basis and is available for the duration of the associated compute allocation period. Data are retained for 3 months beyond the end of the project, by which time data must be migrated elsewhere. As of April 5, 2013, the SDSC Data Oasis project space expansion is complete and
Still One of World's Fastest HPC Systems Gordon, the unique data-intensive flash-based HPC resource at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, holds the 88th position in the Top500 rankings of the world's fastest supercomputers, released this week at SC12 in Salt Lake City, UT. SDSC researchers submitted an entry for Gordon using 218 teraflops per second (TFLOPS) and 12,608 cores – about 75 percent of the system. Built by SDSC researchers
