We offer the community access to a large data storage allocation on Petrel
to address the increasing need for an easy-to-access high-performance
storage solution for the Yellow Report Initiative.
Petrel is a Globus-enabled data service for researchers that provides a
simple and intuitive interface for self-managed project-based data
sharing. Our Petrel allocation is 100TB (more can be added if needed).
The existing pre-grenerated Monte-Carlo data from BNL (13TB and growing)
are mirrored in the
BNL-gpfs02-data directory, and available JLab data
will be added soon as well. You can find more info on Petrel
Petrel is supported and maintained by ALCF.
Because of the Globus back-end it is easy to move, share and discover
data via a single interface, regardless if you are working with on a HPC
facility, computer farm or your local machine. All major laboratories
and supercomputing facilities, as well as most universities support
Globus. This allows you to use your existing laboratory (ANL, BNL, JLab,
LBNL, etc.) or even university credentials to access the files. To
access the storage space,
log in to https://globus.org
with your existing laboratory or university credentials and access the
petrel#eic endpoint. It’s as easy as that!
Write-access is available to anyone in the EIC Globus Group. If you want write-access to the storage space, or if you encounter any issues, you can contact Sylvester or Markus.
