New parallel storage space

A new parallel BeeGFS file system (see https://www.beegfs.io/content/) is now available on PlaFRIM. You will find a /beegfs/<LOGIN> directory on all PlaFRIM nodes.
This parallel file system replaces the /lustre storage which is no longer under warranty and is not recommended.

The data in this directory are not saved. The quota is 1 TB per user.
If you need to write/read massively and/or in parallel, this is the preferred file system unlike your /home/<LOGIN> directory.

Information on all available storage spaces can be found in the plafrim website’s FAQ (see here).

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further information
