Data Center Annual Maintenance Scheduled May 22-28, 2024

Please be advised that due to the annual scheduled maintenance power outage at the MGHPCC data center, MOC Alliance (MOC A) services will be unavailable from 8 am on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2024, until 8 pm on Tuesday, May 28th, 2024.

To ensure that the Mass Open Cloud team can prepare for the outage, it is imperative that you shut down any bare metal systems by 8 am on Wednesday, May 22nd. Failing to do so may result in the loss of your data.

Please note that MOC Alliance services may be available earlier than May 28th. We will notify you of updates by updating the MOC A status website.

Once services are back online, you will be responsible for restarting any systems.

In the event that you need access to any MOC A-hosted data during this outage, it is highly recommended that you obtain copies of your data before Wednesday, May 22nd. During the outage, the data center will be entirely without power, and access to MOC-hosted services will be impossible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to open a support ticket. The ticketing system will be available throughout the outage.

For Research CEPH Cluster Users:

Due to the scheduled maintenance power outage, all ceph research clusters and other research systems must be shut down by 8 am on Wednesday, May 22nd. Failure to do so may result in the loss of your data. Your cooperation during this maintenance period is greatly appreciated.
