Global File System

Stockyard is a global file system to support data driven science and is at the center of TACC's system ecosystem. The file system provides online storage of large datasets used on Stampede, which can be migrated to Corral or Ranch for further data management and archiving, and is accessible to all of TACC's computing and visualization systems. Stockyard provides more than 20 petabytes of storage capacity for scientific data, and allows scientists to access their data rapidly through its aggregate bandwidth of greater than 100 gigabytes per second. This will balance the storage available to all TACC systems and make migration between systems and upgrades to new ones more transparent.

Stockyard is made possible by funding from the O'Donnell Foundation and Data Direct Networks.

Storage Capacity 20 PB
Aggregate Bandwidth 100+ gigabytes per second
