File Transfer and Sharing

Green Data Oasis

  • Green Data Oasis is a large data store on the unrestricted LLNL network.
  • It can be used for sharing very large amounts of data with external collaborators.

File Interchange Service (FIS)


  • Presently LC does not purge any of its file systems.
  • Temporary file systems (e.g. /var/tmp and aliases /tmp and /usr/tmp) are ephemeral. Data in /var/tmp is cleared at the end of batch jobs.
  • See Purge Policies and Using LC File Systems for details.


  • Home directories and several other LC file systems are backed up.
  • Temporary file systems are not.
  • For details, see Backups and Using LC File Systems.
