June 8-9 Maintenance Complete

June 9, 2014

We have completed our maintenance and all services are online and available.  Here are some highlights of what we accomplished during the maintenance:

*Removed old RCE5 compute node equipment and migrated new RCE6 equipment into our cluster rack.

*Migrated all RCE project and home volumes from our old back-end storage to our new cluster storage hardware.   The new cluster storage will allow us to scale into the Petabytes.  

*created new secure storage containers to better segregate sensitive data, in compliance with HEISP/HCI level 3 and 4 requirements.

*Fully patched and deployed latest configurations to the RCE cluster.

*Upgraded to HTCondor 8.0.7.  HTCondor is our cluster compute resource manager.
