Edison Down for About One Month Starting June 24
June 4, 2013 by Francesca Verdier
The Edison Phase II system arrives at NERSC in June, and will boost the Phase I core count by more than a factor of 10. In order to integrate the new components and upgrade existing ones, the entire Edison system will be unavailable for about one month beginning June 24. This includes the login nodes and the scratch file system. Please plan your work accordingly.
While we do not expect to have to delete data on the scratch file system during the conversion, we strongly recommend that you save data you want to preserve to HPSS or elsewhere to guard against unforeseen developments. There is no guarantee your data will be available when Edison returns.
Further details of the Phase II system will be announced later.
