$ARCHIVE will be unavailable from 9 AM to 9 PM on Tuesday, January 9, 2018.
RCS will work with Principal Investigator’s (PI) whose $ARCHIVE data volumes exceed the 10 TB standard quota. RCS storage rates are available at http://gi.alaska.edu/research-computing-systems/service-rates.
Fish, Pacman, and $CENTER will be retired on December 29, 2017.
Users are encouraged to migrate to the new HPC cluster, Chinook. If you are the Principal Investigator of a project and want to have an account created on Chinook, please email email@example.com with your request, your project ID, and the members you would like added to your project.
At the end of November, users will notice a change in automated RCS ticket numbers and will be provided with the option to activate an RCS Service Desk portal account.
Participation in the RCS Service Desk portal is entirely optional.
As always, RCS is available to support users via email, phone, and walk-in.
Chinook will be offline from 9 AM on November 1, 2017, to 5 PM on November 2, 2017, to facilitate expansion from 1892 cores, 73 nodes to 2816 cores, 106 nodes.
This outage is required to facilitate an upgrade of the high-speed, Lustre filesystem software and implement a new management structure for storage services.
Following this outage, all user directories in $CENTER1 will be located in subdirectories under the project(s) that you are a member. Each project will receive a 1 TB, unpurged quota. User directories currently in $CENTER1 will be moved to the new $CENTER1 project directory.
