Description: The Delta Storage resource provides storage allocations on the scratch file system for projects using the Delta CPU and Delta GPU resources. It delivers 4PB of capacity to projects on Delta and will be augmented by a later expansion of 3PB of flash capacity for high-speed, data-intensive workloads. Projects are provided with a 1TB allocation on scratch by default. Please do not request storage allocations smaller than 1TB.
Recommended Use: The Delta Storage resource provides storage allocations on the scratch file system for allocated projects using the Delta CPU and Delta GPU resources. Allocations are available for the duration of the compute allocation period. Scratch is currently unpurged storage though that could change in the future with a minimum of 30 days notice.
