-===== Nuclear, Particle and Theorerical ​Physics =====+===== Basic rules ===== 
 + 
 +Please follow these rules to keep the storage tidy. 
 + 
 +  - Whenever you need to move data to one of the shared folders below,\\ **create a folder with a name than can be understood by everyone** and put the data in there. 
 +  - If the data has been generated by you or if it is for your exclusive use, **create a folder with your username** to accomodate the data. \\ In this way you keep your data away from unwanted people and you can set all the permissions you want on it. 
 +    * Data found outside a folder named after a user it is a good candidate to be deleted. Of course there can be exceptions when needed. 
 +  - Remove data that you don't use, for example from the ''​scratch''​ folders. Be kind to your colleagues! storage has a cost. 
 +  - Follow the instructions at [[aurora_cluster:​moving_data|Moving Data to and from the Aurora cluster]] when you start moving data around.

-Description yet to come.+Particle Physics can share data to the [[:​iridium_cluster|Iridium Cluster]] and has two additional storage servers listed below for their exclusive use.
  
-==== Storage on Iridium ​====+Users not belonging to the division of Particle Physics might be warned to remove their data from those storages, unless otherwise agreed with the Particle Physics division.

 +=== Additional dedicated storage ===
 +
 +There are two storage servers installed for the **exclusive use of Particle Physics**.
 +The recommendation is to use these instead of ''/​project/​hep/​nobackup''​ so to give space to the other users of it.

 +=== Grid storage ===
 +
 +Lunarc hosts a grid storage for ATLAS. Currently we are migrating from a 20TB storage to a 100TB.

 +One can interact through it using the Rucio client. ​

 +Details on how to access this storage are at this page: http://​www.hep.lu.se/​grid/​localgroupdisk.html
