Accessing the Collaboration and Restricted Zones

The table below provides tips for accessing the Collaboration Zone (CZ) and the Restricted Zone (RZ) from your desktop or a Livermore Computing (LC) CZ or RZ machine.

LC has archival storage systems for moving files between LC file systems and HPSS archival storage on all three networks: CZ, RZ, and SCF.

Retrieve files on the SCF by using SFTP/SCP, FTP or Hopper to make a copy of a file from the transfer server to your local machine. Initiate the FTP client software, connect to fastfis.llnl.gov, and complete the authentication process (by specifying a user name and SCF password). After you have connected to to fastfis.llnl.gov, change to your FROM directory and list the file(s) in the directory.

The Livermore Computing (LC) file interchange service (FIS) allows LC users to transfer files between the unclassified Open Computing Facility (OCF)—both the Collaboration Zone (CZ) and the Restricted Zone (RZ)—and the classified Secure Computing Facility (SCF). This document describes how FIS works and how to use it effectively.

This page lists available online tutorials related to parallel programming and using LC's HPC systems.

Livermore Computing provides first-class computational infrastructure that supports the computing requirements of the Laboratory's scientists.  In addition, LC develops High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions, in collaboration with partners at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, for use by the Advanced Simulat
