About POD MT2Back to documentation index
Penguin Computing POD provides two distinct locations for cloud computing that can be accessed through our single POD Portal, MT1 and MT2. Each location has localized storage, and high-speed interconnects between the sites to facilitate easy migration of data from one location to another.
Login nodes and storage volumes (user home directories) are local to each location, but usernames are global to all of POD's locations. The POD Portal's usage reports are global to all POD locations.
