ResearchIT | Summer Updates: Server patching, New Server, Storage transition

June 1, 2017

***Server patching scheduled for 6/1***

The following servers will be taken down for patching the morning of 6/1:
speedy
speedy2
biocrunch
bigram
rit1
rit2
legion
laswin01

We'll send an email out later in the day when patches are complete. 

We will also plan on purging old home directories from users who are no longer here at that time. 
Please remember to keep your important data in your lab directory on MyFiles (Isilon). 

***New Highly Parallel Server***

Our new highly parallel server (https://researchit.las.iastate.edu/legion) is here and ready for use.  This server is suitable only for highly parallel workloads that can scale well to tens or hundreds of cores. 

Please contact researchit@iastate.edu if you're interested in using it, and we'll setup a consultation to get you started.

***Storage Transition***

We're nearing the end of our setup and data ingress process to transition from MyFiles (Isilon) to the new Large Scale Storage (LSS) https://researchit.las.iastate.edu/announcements/new-large-scale-storage. I will be contacting labs individually throughout the summer to schedule their transition onto the new storage platform.
