Changes ahead for N8HPC (Closure 17th July 2018)

N8HPC has announced the “polaris” service will shut down the queues on 17th July 2018.

The UoLeeds ARC team recommend moving your software and simulations (back to?) ARC2, yes, ARC2.  This is because it is virtually identical to Polaris.

It is not yet clear what the “Cloud provision” means for UoLeeds HPC users. It may be that we have to get familiar with topics such as this (NOTE : CEMAC is not recommending that you download this material, we will do what we can to investigate alternatives).

ARC1 switch-off 31 May 2017

Just in case you missed it: ARC1 is being turned off at the end of May 2017.

Hello everyone,

This is another reminder that the ARC1 service closes permanently on May 31st 2017.

If you have not yet made arrangements to migrate your work over to one of the other clusters or you don’t have an account on one of the other machines you need to do this as a matter of urgency.
