Savio HPC services are back online: Tues, 3/26

The Savio HPC services are back online. Taking this opportunity, we have another exciting news to share. The Savio Supercluster currently uses a CentOS 7 Linux operating system. CentOS 7 will reach the end of life on June 30, 2024. Thus, we have planned to migrate to a new operating system, Rocky 8, to keep the system functional and secure. More information on this forthcoming.

Scheduled Savio downtime: Mon, March 25

We have scheduled a Savio downtime to accommodate the power maintenance work. The downtime will start at 5:00 PM on Monday, March 25th. All the HPC hardware will be powered down; thus, HPC services will be unavailable during the downtime. We expect to bring back the cluster online before 5 PM on Wednesday, March 27th. A scheduler reservation will be in place to ensure no jobs run after 5:00 PM on Monday, March 25th. If you plan to submit jobs, please ask for proper wall time so they can be completed before the downtime. Otherwise, your jobs will wait in the queue until the cluster is back online.
