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.
