Project Directories

UMIACS labs distribute shared data to workgroups onsite and outside UMIACS using a wide variety of protocols including FTP, SFTP, SCP, NFS, and SMB.

On-site clients can access project directories through the Network File System (NFS) and Server Message Block (SMB) protocols. Supported UNIX workstations map project directories to

   /fs/

Windows workstations map project directories as

   \\*.umiacs.umd.edu\

As an example, for directories on the Dell Fluid Filesystem, the path would be \\fluidfs.umiacs.umd.edu\.

Project data storage may not be shared by default with every host. Please send mail to staff to configure a new share.

Clients can also access data using authenticated File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), and Secure Copy (SCP) through UMIACS file servers.

Usage Guidelines

Project Directories using Network attached Storage (NAS) are tuned for your workgroup's requirements and preferences.

Please avoid storing personal data in project storage allocations. Separating project data from personal data will simplify administration and data management for both researchers and staff.
