Wed 4 Apr 2018 We are very close to the production launch of Niagara, the new system installed at SciNet. While the RAC allocation year officially starts today, April 4/18, the Niagara system is still undergoing some final tuning and software updates, so the plan is to officially open it to users on next week.
All active GPC users will have their accounts, $HOME, and $PROJECT, transferred to the new Niagara system. Those of you who are new to SciNet, but got RAC allocations on Niagara, will have your accounts created and ready for you to login.
We are planning an extended Intro to SciNet/Niagara session, available in person at our office, and webcast on Vidyo and possibly other means, on Wednesday April 11 at noon EST.
