6/24-25: Centerwide Power Outage

UB Facilities is in the final stages of an electrical upgrade to the building housing the CCR data center.  In order to make the final transition to the new electrical service and switch gear, the power to the entire building must be shut down.  Unfortunately, this will include the CCR data center.  The building power shutdown will run from Friday afternoon, June 24 – Saturday morning - June 25, 2016


The following is the tentative schedule for CCR shutdowns:


Friday, 6/24 at 8am – Faculty clusters and visualization portal nodes go offline for maintenance (system, security, and software updates)


Friday, 6/24 at 12pm – Academic and Industry clusters and other department/lab servers are shutdown.  ALL CCR servers and services will be shut off by 4pm.


Saturday, 6/25 beginning at 8am – Clusters are put back into production.  This could take several hours and is based on the assumption that UB Facilities will have completed their tasks by 6am, as planned.


We apologize for this inconvenience and will work quickly to restore CCR resources.  If you have any questions, please submit a help ticket.

NOTE: This schedule is dependent on UB Facilities and their work.  We will update it if things should change.

Jobs will remain in the queue until the power outage is over and nodes are brought back into production.
