Research Computing Center Storage Systems

The Research Computing Center (RCC) at the University of Chicago provides high-capacity storage space for persistent data as well as high-performance storage space for staging data generated by computational processes running on the RCC cluster.  

The Midway high performance computing cluster forms the core of the RCC's advanced computing infrastructure.  The Midway provides a high-performance storage system for scratch space and a high-capacity storage area for persistent data (where home and project directories are hosted).  Data residing in either storage silo are accessible from all RCC computer nodes. 

Institutional Repository

The Library is currently in the early stages of developing an institutional repository to preserve and share the scholarly, creative, and administrative assets of the University. The repository will be available to the community on a pilot basis beginning in late 2015, with a view towards full production for Spring 2016.
