Amazon AWS transfers from Minerva
If you are copying large amounts of data to or from Amazon AWS, then please keep an upper limit of 100MB/s via your AWS CLI configuration. Minerva is a shared environment and aggressive uploads from some processes is bound to throttle performance for everyone else.

We do not backup user data. It is the users' responsibility to ensure data is backed up in accordance with their funding agency or private organization requirements. Refer to "Preserving Data: Who’s Got Your Back(up)?" for helpful hints in developing your individual backup strategy.
