2023 Software Upgrade Announcement

2023-05-27 - UPDATE - We have decided to postpone this upgrade until December. More details forthcoming.

We are planning an upgrade to the HPC software stack between the Summer, 2023 and Fall, 2023 semesters. We'll announce specific dates and a maintenance schedule as we get closer to August.

What's New

We are making the following changes to our software stack to increase stability, fix bugs, and enhance the usability of the HPC:

  1. Migrate from CentOS v8.3 to AlmaLinux v8.6
  2. Upgrade the Slurm scheduler from v20.11 to v23.02 (release notes)
  3. Possible package changes; we will publish more information as the project evolves.

This will give us a better "jumping off" point for our upgrade to AlmaLinux 9 next year (in 2024).
