FAQ
Frequently asked questions regarding Datastores

Data is private

Any datastore you upload to Grid can only be accessed by you. Grid does not look at or manipulate your data in anyway.

Data retention

If you delete your account, data will be deleted immediately.

Public vs private data

When you create a datastore, you certify that you have the rights to that data. Only you have access to your datastore. It's up to you to make sure you have the rights to access that data.

Does Grid charge for Data Storage?

Grid does not charge for storing data. However, there is a limit of 25 datastores.

Does Grid have a limit on DataStore size?

Yes Grid DataStore max size is 1.5 TB. For security reasons, we only allow you to upload data for 24 hours continuously. If your data is too big to upload in a 24 hour period, it will stop uploading. Initiating grid datastore create <args...> again will resume the upload.

Is there a way to see what files are in a datastore?

Create an interactive session with the datastore mounted, then you will be able to browse the data including folders and files using Jupyter lab or SSH

How does Grid store/access my data?

Grid will have access to your account data for operational purposes. If we do need access to your account for debugging purposes, we will notify you.
