What is Turbo?
Turbo is a high-capacity, reliable, secure, and fast storage solution. It is tuned for large files (which corresponds roughly to be files in 1 megabyte in size or larger), but it is still capable of efficiently storing small files, such as: word documents, spreadsheets, image files, etc.
Turbo enables investigators across the University of Michigan to store and access data needed for their research via a local host in a lab or our High Performance Computing Clusters, such as: Great Lakes, Lighthouse, and Armis2. Additionally, it supports the storing of sensitive data on HIPAA compliant systems, such as the Armis2 cluster managed by ARC-TS.
Turbo costs (U-M Shortcode is required to order):
- Without replication: $9.60 per terabyte per month ($115.20 per year)
- With replication: $19.20 per terabyte per month ($230.40 per year)
Researchers in the Medical School and College of Literature, Science, and the Arts can take advantage of free or subsidized storage options through their respective academic units.
- Medical School researchers can contact HITS-RAAC-HPC-Support@umich.edu for more information.
- LSA researchers can contact email@example.com for more information.

*** Be aware that if you have a Multi-protocol or NFS Turbo volume that is mounted on Great Lakes there is no need to set up a separate Globus endpoint for it ***
