New Cluster Build – More Nodes Will Be Moved From Nanobio to New Cluster

The build of our new cluster has been progressing well and we are now ready to migrate more nodes from Nanobio to the new cluster.  This means that Nanobio will lose even more computational power, which also means that jobs will remain waiting in queue for an even longer period of time.

Effective immediately, all access to the ib-compute-0-n nodes has been closed.  Jobs already running on these nodes will be allowed to run in their entirety (or until they are killed by the system if they reach the 1 week max running time).

Additionally, any jobs that were submitted in 2015 that are currently running (these are jobs that were submitted before we put in place the maximum running time restriction) will be allowed to run until no later than Monday February 15, 2016 at 12:00pm.  Any jobs that are still running at that time will be killed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and as always, we thank you for your patience during this time.  We anticipate the new cluster will be up sooner rather than later.

P.S.  Remember that if your Nanobio account was created before November 2014, you need to re-register your account by filling out the form on our site.  More details in our FAQ.
