GLADE project space changes begin July 10

July 11, 2018

Changes to the GLADE project space being implemented on Tuesday, July 10, continue the evolution of CISL’s storage architecture and user environment as announced in April. Users should take note of the changes for their impact on workflows and scripts.

Here are the key changes to be aware of:

  • On July 10, the present /glade/p/ spaces will become /glade/p_old/ and be made read/write-only for a period of 30 days. After 30 days, the old spaces will be read-only until they are decommissioned at the end of 2018.

  • Also on July 10, new /glade/p/<entity>/ spaces will be in place for existing projects so users can move their files from /glade/p_old/ to the new file system. An entity can be univ, uwyo, cesm, cisl, nsc, or other designated NCAR lab or special program.


  • NCAR Lab: /glade/p/P12345678 becomes /glade/p_old/P12345678 and the new space is /glade/p/cisl/P12345678

  • University: /glade/p/UABC1234 becomes /glade/p_old/UABC1234 and the new space is /glade/p/univ/UABC1234

CISL recommends using Globus as the most efficient way to transfer files. The system monitors progress and automatically validates correctness of each file transfer. Users are asked to remove files from /glade/p_old/ once their transfers are complete.
