Scratch Storage Policy
OSC provides a scratch file system as high-performance, high-capacity, shared space. It is temporary without backup. No customer should rely upon the retention of data placed on scratch storage. The purpose of this policy is to (1) keep sufficient scratch space available at all times, (2) maintain good performance of the scratch file system, (3) protect users from misuse of scratch which will result in data loss and (4) reduce manual management of scratch data by OSC staff.
