Get an Allocation

OSN storage can be requested through the XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) User Portal. Allocations of a minimum 10 terabytes and max of 50 terabytes supporting up to 1.6 million files can be requested through the XSEDE XRAS process. Larger allocations can be accommodated with additional review. If your project needs more than more than 50 terabytes or more than 1.6 million files, please contact us directly to discuss before you submit your request.

If you are looking for a smaller allocation to get started with the OSN service, you can request a startup allocation of one to ten terabytes.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need assistance with submitting these requests, OR if you do not have an account on the XSEDE portal. We will be happy to help you!

An active research dataset can remain in OSN storage up to five years.
