    Information [ update of the supercomputing system ]
    We are planning to update the supercomputing system from the middle of April in 2018.
    1. Update schedule
      End of present supercomputing system : Apr. 12 (Thu.) 9:00, 2018
      Start of new supercomputing system (schedule) : Aug. 1 (Wed.) 13:00, 2018
    We will cancel all running and pending jobs at April 1st and one cannot run any jobsafter April 1st, 2018. However, one can login to the supercomputing system and download own data until April 11.
    2. Outline of the new supercomputing system
      Please see new_system_e.pdf.
    3. Data transfer
     We will transfer data on one’s home directory except for SAS areas (/home/UID/sassuper and /home/UID/sasapp) to the new supercomputing system. If one needs data on SAS areas, be sure to download by the end of supercomputing system service.
