Thank you for partnering with ITaP in the community cluster program.

Carter will be decommissioned on April 30, 2017.

Compute Nodes and Scratch Storage

The compute nodes and scratch storage will both be decommissioned, and all files will need to be migrated before this time.

ALL DATA in /scratch/carter WILL NOT BE RETRIEVABLE after April 30, 2017, by anyone from any system. ITaP recommends storing important data in the Fortress HPSS archive or Data Depot service. To copy data to another cluster scratch, we recommend rsync or Globus.

For example: rsync -auH /scratch/carter/r/rherban/* halstead:/scratch/halstead/r/rherban

For more information on using Fortress or Data Depot, please visit the following links:
