Compressed Input Files

Uploading your input files as a compressed archive/file allows you to upload a collection of input files for a job all at once. Advantages of this are:

  • reduced storage needs
  • faster uploads

If a compressed archive/file is included as an input file for a job, when your cluster is launched any files in the zip file are automatically extracted to your job's work directory prior to the job being run. When you refer to files extracted from zipped archives in your command line or script, be careful with the relative paths to your files. The zip file itself will remain in storage for you and can be used again as input to subsequent jobs if you choose to do so. The supported compressed formats are

  • .zip
  • .tar, .tar.gz, .tgz, .gz
  • .7z
