Reminder of Eagle Data Storage Policies for FY21 projects ending 9/30/2021

Eagle usage policies can be found at: HPC Policies

Users are always strongly encouraged to remove any data on Eaglefs that is not needed, to benefit other users of this shared resource.

In summary, data in /projects for allocations that end on 9/30/2021 will be purged on 12/31/2021.

Users may continue to log in to HPC systems for a period of 3 months after the project enters the Expired state to move relevant data off of HPC primary storage (primarily /projects/) to another storage location.

Users may continue to request MSS (Mass Storage System) files that have been archived, for a period of 15 months after the files have been initially archived.

Eagle's /scratch files have a policy of potentially being purged if not accessed within 28 days.

Please contact the HPC Help Desk with any questions at

October is the start of the 2022 allocation year

Scheduling will be paused on Eagle on October 1st to implement the new allocations.
