The Swestore Nationally accessible storage is avaliable for researchers financed from VR (which includes all researchers using SNIC compute resources) and FORMA.
[[Swestore|< Swestore]]
Swestore is in collaboration with [http://www.ecds.se ECDS], [http://snd.gu.se SND], Bioimage, [http://www.bils.se/ BILS], [http://www.uppnex.uu.se/ UPPNEX],[http://wlcg.web.cern.ch/ WLCG], [http://www.nrm.se/ Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet]. If any of these cover your research area, first read their information on applying for SweStore storage.
Please see http://www.snic.se/apply-for-resources/instructions-for-swestore-allocations
In the future, applications for storage will be handled by each research community, but for now an email to [mailto:swestore-support@snic.vr.se swestore-support@snic.vr.se] will suffice.
Please include the following information:
* Name of the principal investigator (PI).
* Purpose for the storage: A short description of the project and type of data.
* Required storage capacity: Preferably a maximum size, but if this is not currently determinable, please calculate a starting size and expansion by time period. '''NOTE''' that applications larger than 10TB takes longer to process.
* Suggested project name: This will be used as root directory name for your storage.
# '''NOTE''' that this name is long-lived and will persist. It is not coupled to the lifetime of SNIC compute time allocations.
# The name must be limited to lower-case letters a-z, digits 0-9 and underscores _.
