Data at FACET&Test Facilities

FACET&TF does not require Users to follow a particular data management scheme. Users should discuss their needs and plans with the FACET User Manager prior to implementation.

Users of FACET&TF are responsible for complying with the data management and curation policies of their home institutions and funding agents and authorities.

Resources provided to FACET&TF Users:

  • SLAC Computing Accounts (Windows, UNIX, Exchange)
  • Access to FACET Controls Network (for approved FACET users only)
  • SLAC visitor wireless
  • Workstations on secure controls network
  • Workstations on SLAC Public network
  • Networked storage drives on FACET Controls Network (for approved FACET users only)
  • NFS storage on SLAC Public network

Data needs are expected to be small (~ few TB for the most demanding experiments) and the facilities provided reflect that. At FACET, data rates of 83 MB/s have been measured with 6 cameras writing to the networked storage drives.


Storage lifetime is anticipated to last for approximately the timescale of the FACET&TF program.


Users may copy subsets of the data to their individual computers or off-site servers for data analysis.

Please see our FAQ for specific details on how to access data and use our provided resources.
