Use of MSK HPC resources assumes you have a basic understanding of Unix/Linux operating systems and their use. If you are a novice and would like additional assistance in getting started, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you with the basic training needed to fairly and efficiently use our compute resources.

Data Backup

Closing Accounts

Please complete the account close request form to notify us of your intent to close your HPC account.

 An account is not considered closed until all data has been removed from /home. As long as data remains in a user’s /home directory, the user’s PI will continue to be charged for that account and /home quota.

It is the responsibility of the user to delete their /home data; the HPC group does not delete user data. If a user is unable to move or delete data from their /home directory, the HPC group is able to reassign files to another user or share them with the group. Please note your request to reassign files in the close an account form.
