We at the HPCf have decided that our old cluster Nanobio (Boqueron’s predecessor) will be retired after the end of July of this year. On August 1st, 2017, Nanobio will be powered down and any data left in any of its file systems (including /home and /work) will no longer be available from that time onward. As we have done since Boqueron went online on March 2016, we encourage all users who still have any data on Nanobio to move or copy it to some other system as soon as possible. Transferring data to Boqueron is one option, but please keep in mind that, per our usage policies, users should transfer to Boqueron only the data that they will actually need for their work there; Boqueron is not designed or intended for long-term storage. Users will be responsible for making sure they do not incur any data loss as a result of Nanobio’s retirement.
Any users whose HPCf accounts were created after Boqueron went online may disregard this notice since they do not have a Nanobio account. As always, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
