HTAR ("HPSS Tape Archiver") is an LC-designed TAR-like utility program that makes TAR-compatible archive (library) files but with High Performance Storage System (HPSS) support and enhanced archive-management features.

The High Performance Storage System (HPSS) is available on all OCF (CZ/RZ) and SCF production systems. Each user has a storage account with passwordless access from LC systems. The current storage quotas can be found by searching for "yearly growth quota" and picking the most recent Technical Bulletin.  The EZSTORAGE manual provides an overview of tools for storing and archiving files.

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