Handle your data
Several volumes of data storage are available on the IFB Core Cluster. Use it knowingly.
|Home directory (personal data)
|Scientific and project (common data)
|Read-Only. Common banks (UniProt, RefSeq, ...)
If you need or plan to use more storage space, please contact us: community support website
⚠️ There is no backup for the main storage.
Some snapshots are available to protect against deletion by error but only one by day and for 5 days.
A project is a directory on the storage associated with users who can access it.
In order to have your folder and space on
/shared/projects/<myproject\>, you have to request a new project on the IFB Core Cluster Account Manager: https://my.cluster.france-bioinformatique.fr/manager2/project
You can have multiple projects (and it's recommended).
