HPC Storage


RCSS offers High Performance Storage (HPC Storage) to accommodate parallel work flows. This storage is ideal for storing raw data and results.

Example Use Case

  • I have a highly parallel application that will require fast read and write storage capabilities across different nodes.



  • There are no backups of any storage. The RCSS team is not responsible for data integrity and data loss. You are responsible for your own data and data backup. RCSS recommends the UMKC Researcher Managed Backup Storage.


  • Groups located in HPC (/storage/hpc/group/group_name) are considered flat and all users located within a specific group have the same permissions. The PI for the group is the only person who can approve additions and removals of users in groups.
