WHEN: Wed, 2/25/2015 4:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m. EST

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 ~ The "scrubber" script to begin running on /gpfs/scratch.  All files over one month old will be deleted as per our scratch storage retention policy.

All CCR resources will be unavailable for use Tuesday - Thursday, January 13-15, 2015 as we migrate to the new GPFS storage solution.  This includes all servers that mount the CCR storage area network (SAN):
Substantial system upgrades, installation of new hardware and other changes will take place at CCR over the next few months and throughout 2015.  The first, and most noteworthy, being the installation of a new 3 Petabyte high performance file system that should have more than 20 times the performance of our existing file system (in addition to 5 times greater storage capacity).   

Installation of the new storage system along with the other changes that are summarized below will necessitate downtimes at CCR in which our production systems (clusters, networking, and storage) will be offline.   We are doing everything we can to schedule these with a minimum disruption in our services.
