Research Computing Holiday Break

Research Computing personnel will observe the university winter break from 5:00pm EST on Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021, and will resume normal business hours on Monday, January 3rd, 2022. During this time, Research Computing services will continue to be available, but all staff will be on leave.

Research Computing staff members will monitor the status of all computing and data resources in an effort to ensure continuous availability.

Research Computing staff members will monitor the ticketing system throughout the holiday period and answer critical user questions. Non-critical user questions will be addressed beginning Monday, January 3rd, 2022. There will also be no coffee hour consultations during this break.

Scratch file purging (on community clusters with scratch space) will continue as normal during the break, so be sure to archive your files in scratch storage or check for any upcoming purge warning email during the break. This does not apply to Data Depot or home directories -- only scratch storage.

Have a wonderful break, everyone, and we look forward to great things in the new year!
