 E.g. Each node has "​cpus"​ and "​disks",​ we want to allow users to create jobs to reserve disks for a long period, and eventually request smaller compute jobs on resources on which those disks are reserved. E.g.

 This would give users the capability of keeping data on disk for a longer time than the compute time, e.g. a more persistent storage for data. This would give users the capability of keeping data on disk for a longer time than the compute time, e.g. a more persistent storage for data.

   * The ''​reserve_disk''​ and ''​with_disk''​ job types do not allow to reserve at once (in a single ''​oarsub''​ command) both the disk and compute resources.   * The ''​reserve_disk''​ and ''​with_disk''​ job types do not allow to reserve at once (in a single ''​oarsub''​ command) both the disk and compute resources.
 +  * A //​with_disk//​ compute job could easily suffer from starvation since it will only be scheduled once the disk job is started:
 +    * While batch jobs which are not started yet will be move with regard to previous scheduling decisions, some may have started before the disk property of the resources is changed, making resources whose disks are reserved unavailable for the duration of those jobs.
 +    * Advance reservations could also be accepted on the resources: resources are //booked// upon submission acceptation for an advance reservation,​ possibly before the disk property is changed.
