We will be moving the JHPCE cluster equipment to the University’s new collocation site on the Bayview Campus. We are on track to outgrow the existing server room, which has limited power and cooling capabilities.
The change of venue will have no impact on the way the JHPCE resources are used, nor will it change the names of any of the login servers. However, the move is very complex and it will require an extended (6-day) service interruption to shutdown, disassemble, move, reassemble, and reboot the system. At the present time the plan is to shut down the cluster at 9:00 AM on Thursday August 18. At that time all logins will be disabled and all running jobs will be killed. We expect to be up and running again by 9am Wednesday August 24. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
