Pantheon Storage

Important note: The Pantheon Storage service is in the process of being decommissioned in 2014. Detailed information describing alternate storage solutions will be communicated in the near future.

What is it?

The Pantheon is a group of machines for Yale affiliates to log into and use as personal storage space. This space has a variety of uses, including storage for backup files or publishing pages onto the web.

Email is not stored on the Pantheon, but on different post office boxes on other machines. 

The Pantheon is part of a family of related services. See the file storage comparison matrix for other options.

Connecting to Pantheon

Users can connect to the pantheon with a command line terminal interface to perform file operations and run programs, such as Pine.

Users can also connect to the pantheon and transfer files using SSH for Windows or Fugu for MacOS X.

Your Pantheon file space can be mounted as a drive on your computer. This allows you to treat your Pantheon space like any other drive on your computer, and provides easy management of the files on your Pantheon space. On cluster machines in computer labs, your Pantheon space should automatically be mounted when you log in. You can find a link to it on the desktop, named with your NetID.
