HPC3 Production and HPC Shutdown on 5 Jan 2021s

Wednesday, Nov 04 2020 by Philip Papadopoulos

We are pleased to announce that HPC3 is in production All existing HPC users have accounts on HPC3 and can get started right away. A short presentation answers some of the key questions up front.

The existing HPC cluster will run until 5 Jan 2021. On that day, RCIC will shut down the queuing system, kill all running jobs and begin the process of physically dismantling HPC, moving some hardware to HPC3, and starting the transition of selected "mid-life" nodes for a cluster called HPC2.

Users should begin their transition to HPC3 now. Please note that any files in your current HPC home area will be discarded sometime in January.
