Franklin to retire no sooner than Apr 30

December 20, 2011 by Helen | 0 Comments

NERSC is making progress on plans to acquire our next major system.  Franklin's retirement is necessary to prepare the machine room for the new system.  At this point in our planning we can say that Franklin will retire no sooner than April 30.  Additional announcements will be made with more details when a firm date is set.

If you are currently only using Franklin you should start migrating to Hopper.  If you need help or have any concerns, please contact NERSC consultants at "consult at nersc dot gov".

Franklin earliest retirement date: 03/31/2012

December 20, 2011 by Helen He | 0 Comments

This is the first announcement for the earliest possible retirement date of Franklin: March 31, 2012. Additional announcements will be made with more details when the date is set.

NERSC is working with DOE on an accelerated schedule for the next major system, and the retirement of Franklin helps us to prepare the machine room for it.  If our current plan changes, we may extend the lifetime of Franklin.  

If you are currently only using Franklin you should start migrating to Hopper.  If you need help or have any concerns, please contact NERSC consultants at "consult at nersc dot gov".
