New storage and temp space on VRDC6401

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We have added additional storage space on VRDC6401 We now have

  • 1 TB of slow storage (presently and temporarily direct attached via USB!) - ask Lars if you require this space.
  • 2x"300GB" / 10k disks split as follows:

    • 300GB of RAID0 space mounted as /temporary (for scratch space)
    • 130GB of RAID1 (mirrored) space, mounted as /rdcprojects. You should use this for storage of your files related to your VRDC project.

    Why, do you ask, does this not add up to 600GB? Both spaces span both disks. The RAID0 is composed of 2x150GB partitions, the RAID1 of the remainder ... which happens to be only 130GB, not 150GB. Disk manufacturers cheat when they note their size - using 1,000,000 for a GB, not the more correct (binary-based) 1,048,576. Once on your computer however, your computer will use the binary version of GB...
