UPDATE: HPC SYSTEMS AT DIPC

Due to some unforseen events and delays, we expect to begin powering up the HPC systems hosted in the new computing room from Wednesday on and not from Monday on as it was planned.

This is the list of systems and equipment that will stay off until said
day:

ATLAS
BRONTES
LAQUESIS-03 and LAQUESIS-04
CRONOS
NIKITIN-01
SKANDAL

Systems were physically migrated during the past week and during this week they have been installed and rewired. According to the planned schedule, we should have begun powering them up during the present week, but since the cooling and fire systems are not installed yet, that has been rendered impossible to do.

In the case of Atlas, we are powering its nodes up in small groups in order to deploy and reconfigure every single one of them. However, since no more than a few of them can be running at the same time, they are immediately powered off after the configuration stage in order to deploy and configure a new set.

Cooling and fire systems should be installed by next Tuesday and we should start bringing HPC services up from Wednesday on.

Sorry for the trouble this delay may have caused you.
