The Sun x4170 archive system uses disk based storage with two SAS attached storage enclosures using one TB SATA drives. User data on this archive is periodically mirrored to a secondary offsite storage archive system. At this time (circa January 2010), the Sun x4170 system's storage capacity is 28 TB. As the demand for archiving dictates, and as funding permits, the SC will progressively increase the disk storage on the Sun storage archive.
Use of all data storage facilities provided by TAMU Supercomputing, including the storage archive, is subject to the following established policies:
