Data Center Annual Maintenance Scheduled May 23-26, 2022

Due to a scheduled power outage at the MGHPCC data center, MOC services will be unavailable from Monday, May 23, 2022 at 6PM through Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 12PM. This is buffered before and after the power actual power outage to allow MOC maintenance.

Please shut down your virtual machines, containers, and any bare metal systems by 9 AM on Monday, August 9, so that the Mass Open Cloud team may begin preparing for the outage. If you do not shut them down yourself, you run the risk of losing data.

The MOC has dependencies on several services which also run at the data center. Based on previous experience we recommend not scheduling critical events the week of May 23rd.

If you will need access to any MOC hosted data during this outage, please make sure to obtain copies of that data prior to Monday, May 23rd. During the outage, the data center will be completely without power and access to MOC hosted services will be impossible.

As always, if you have questions feel free to open a support ticket. The ticketing system will be available throughout the outage.
