MEES Cluster Migration

Posted on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 12:46 pm

MEES Cluster Users:

Now that the Viper Cluster has been successfully moved to our new Research Computing server room, we will finally be able to complete the integration of the MEES cluster into the Viper cluster environment. This will allow us to create a single pool of compute nodes and unify the user and project storage spaces which should greatly improve the ease of use of our clusters.

We will begin this work at 8am on Thursday, August 8th and we expect to be finished by 5pm on Friday, August 9th. The MEES cluster will be unavailable during this time, but all of the other clusters, including Viper, will remain in production. Please plan your use of the MEES cluster with this outage in mind.

Once this work is completed, there will be several changes to the way in which you interact with the cluster. Additional details will be provided in a separate message next week.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause,

Charles Price, Ph.D.
