Storage quotas and rates take effect July 1, 2018. PIs and projects over quota in $CENTER1 and $ARCHIVE need to reduce data volumes or contact RCS immediately. Inaction will result in project member inability to read or write data starting July 1, 2018.

Dec 29 2017 - 8:00am to 9:00pm

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 with your request, your project ID, and the members you would like added to your project.

Nov 28 2017 - 1:00pm to 5:15pm

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.

Nov 1 2017 - 9:00am to Nov 2 2017 - 5:00pm

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.

Aug 22 2017 - 9:00am to Aug 24 2017 - 9:00pm

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.

Jul 27 2017 - 9:00am to 10:45am

On July 27th there will be maintenance on the $CENTER1 file system to address slowdown and errors involving file operations. The system will need to be taken offline to apply a patch that we anticipate will resolve these issues. Jobs that are scheduled to run during this downtime will stay in the queue and be run after the downtime reservation. The Chinook HPC cluster and the Linux workstations will be affected by this outage.
