Home Directories

All user home directories for the department are now stored on ZFS storage located in the “003” server room in Rice Hall. ZFS is a widely used, industry-standard storage platform that offers modern features such as backups/snapshots. User data is stored on a Nexsan E-Series storage appliance capable of scaling to 6 petabytes in a single 42U server rack. The disk arrays in this device are connected to a SAN (storage area network) via 8Gb fiber-channel and served over NFS by servers running Solaris.

There are four servers serving ZFS partitions:

ServerPartitions
zfs1.cs.virginia.edu/zf1-zf6
zfs2.cs.virginia.edu/zf7-zf12
zfs3.cs.virginia.edu/zf13-zf19
zfs4.cs.virginia.edu/zf20-zf25
