The new file server, RAHU, with the Xserve RAID storage array, is in production, and we are beginning to migrate user acounts to it.
The new home directory storage area is using a 1 TB set on the Xserve RAID. The remaining space on the RAID will be used for future growth, group storage, or possibly other uses. While we do not have quotas enabled yet, we will be doing this after the end of the semester when we have the self-service quota system installed and ready for use.
In the near term, users will not see any operational differences between the current configuration and RAHU. Migration of accounts will be completely transparent, and PAX will continue to be the access point for all home directories. User restores from the snapshot system will be allowed starting in August — in time for Fall semester.Posted by Rowan Littell at April 12, 2004 10:41 AM, updated 08:07 AM November 03, 2005
