NOBACKUP is a high-throughput, parallel "scratch" space. The system is intended to store either temp files during active computation, or datasets curated by other organizations that are used in computational activities.
Backup features, such as snapshots and off-site mirroring, are sacrificed in order to achieve throughput through parallelism. Speed tests have shown NOBACKUP to be ~2-5x faster than Data on average when accessed via a Lustre connected system.
