Engineering Repository Storage
Information and Request Form
The College of Engineering and the Engineering Computing Center have established
a storage area on the fileservers for users who need temporary and semi-permanent
allocations of disk space above their normal disk quota. This storage is only
available to the UNIX systems (Compaq Tru64 UNIX and Sun Solaris) and is available to all
engineering students, both undergraduate and graduate.
This storage space is located at the Repository mount points:
/Net/hydra/engi_repos1 (ELEE, MECE)
/Net/hydra/engi_repos2 (CHEE, CIVE, INDE)
Each department within the college has been allocated a fixed amount of this storage
area based on its graduate student enrollment. The departments may allocate
their area based on requests from students within their department.
The departments can decide to grant access to the repository based on a number of criteria:
- Justification or need
- Amount of space requested
- Amount of space available in the department's area
- Duration of request
