NERSC Move to CRT Complete

April 6, 2016 by Rebecca Hartman-Baker

NERSC has completed the move of the vast majority of its resources from the Oakland Scientific Facility (OSF) location to the Computational Research and Theory (CRT) building at the main Berkeley Lab campus.

The major components of the move were completed earlier in the year. In particular, Edison was moved from OSF to CRT and returned to service on January 4, 2016, and all the NERSC filesystems were migrated across a 400 Gb/s link from OSF to CRT, resulting in no filesystem downtime for the move. The final moves of the cluster providing resources to PDSF, JGI, the Materials Project, and Babbage was performed in February. The final moves of web and database services are finishing up now.

Still remaining in OSF is the HPSS system. At this point, there are no upcoming plans to move the HPSS system in the near future.
