Taiga is NCSA's Global File System that is integrated with all non-HIPAA environments in the National Petascale Computation Facility. Built with SSUs (Scaleable Storage Units) spec'd by NCSA engineers with DDN, it provides a center-wide, single-namespace file system that is available to use across multiple platforms and is based on DDN's Exascaler platform, running Lustre. This allows researchers to access their data on multiple systems simultaneously; improving their ability to run science pipelines across batch, cloud, and container resources. Taiga is also well integrated with the Granite Tape Archive to allow users to readily stage out data to their tape allocation for long term, cold storage.
There is no cost associated with this resource.
