From Pilot to Production

As SNIC Science Cloud has gone from a pilot to a production resource, the pilot regions in the cloud will be replaced new regions with production hardware.

The region at C3SE has already been replaced by the new WEST-1 region; running OpenStack Rocky on new hardware.

The other pilot cloud-regions at UPPMAX and HPC2N will soon be replaced with the EAST-1 and NORTH-1 regions.

If you are starting up new projects in the cloud we suggest that you use the WEST-1 region for now until the other regions becomes available, because otherwise you will have to migrate your workload to the new regions soon.

Maintenance with downtime in the HPC2N region.

Planned downtime in the HPC2N region on Monday the 20th of April between 6-12 and Tuesday the 21th of April between 11-17, due to urgent electrical work. All running instances will be suspended before the outage and restarted again afterwards.

The other regions will not be affected by this and so if you can, we suggest move your workloads to the new WEST-1 region that is running a much more resent version of OpenStack on new hardware.

Scheduled downtime for the HPC2N region of SSC – 3/9 2018

One of the central network switches in the storage-infrastructure will be replaced due to a failed fan and to do this we must shut down all running instances in the HPC2N region on 3/9 2018 between 08:00 and 12:00.

This will only effect the HPC2N region and will not have any impact on instances running in the other SSC regions.

However login via the web dashboard to the other regions will not work during this maintenance period.
