We are planning the annual HPC maintenance period for this summer. This maintenance will occur in stages between July 25 and August 19.
As part of our effort to improve the reliability of our infrastructure, we are migrating our Virtual Machine Cluster (commonly known as "SKY") from the OpenStack platform to the oVirt platform.
We will be updating the SSH hostkeys on the Spear servers today. This could result in failed connections with a "possible dns spoofing detected" error message. To fix this, you will need to update or remove the cached key from your client.
We're excited about our newest team member, Cameron Berkley.
Cameron joined our systems team in January, 2016. He received his bachelors degree in Scientific Computing from the FSU Department of Scientific Computing where he studied geometric morphometrics and computer vision. He is currently continuing with his masters degree, working on shape retrieval algorithms.
The deadline is approaching for the NCSA Blue Waters Graduate Fellowship. The program includes 1 year fellowship $38,000 + $12,000 tuition allowance + 50,000 node hours on Blue Waters HPC System.
Winter break is upon us again! As a reminder, FSU will be closed for the Winter holiday, starting Thursday, Dec 24 though Sunday, January 4. We will re-open on January 4.
During this break, our systems will remain online and functional. RCC staff will respond to any critical support requests sent to email@example.com as soon we are able. All non-critical support requests will be answered when we return on January 4, 2015.
On behalf of the staff here at the RCC, we wish you a fun, festive, and high-performance holiday!
Our very own Bin Chen has published a paper in Scientific Reports which offers more proof of Einstein's general theory of relativity.
Applications are now open for the NCSA Blue Waters Graduate Fellowship. The program includes 1 year fellowship $38,000 + $12,000 tuition allowance + 50,000 node hours on Blue Waters HPC System.
As of today, over 229,300 jobs have successfully run in the Slurm scheduler. Given the stability and flexibility of the new scheduler, we are consolidating the Condor system into the Slurm. This means that jobs you previously submitted to Condor, you will now submit to a HPC partition named Condor.
