Data Documentation

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre provides capabilities for building, utilising, and sharing research data products.


Our resource capabilities consist of two flavours:

  • warm tier - intended to support scalable responsive workflows,
  • cool tier - intended to support workflows involving large datasets and infrequent access patterns.

Pawsey users have several storage options:

  • project storage - a 1TB (expandable to 10TB) shared allocation automatically available to all active Pawsey projects,
  • private storage - a personal 100GB allocation automatically available to individual members of active Pawsey projects.
  • managed storage - any other storage request; for which we require a submission via the Application Portal.
Getting started

The tools for accessing and utilising these data services will depend on the resource tier(s) you require for your workflows.

Please navigate to the acacia guide if you are using warm tier only, for example:

  • project storage
  • private storage
  • /group users

Please navigate to the mediaflux guide if you are using both warm and cool tiers, for example:

  • data portal users
  • pshell users
  • HPC HSM /project users
Policy compliance

Please note that all services are subject to the standard Pawsey Conditions of Use.

In addition, use of the storage services is subject to the Data Storage and Management Policy.
