Due to the latest security flaws in Intel CPU:s, users of SNIC Science Cloud must patch all instances to the latest kernel as soon as possible.
- If you are running a Debian or Ubuntu instance run:
- If you are running a CentOS instance run:
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.
The SNIC Science Cloud (SSC) invites all interested current and future users to a training workshop on an introductory level at Mid Sweden University, Campus Sundsvall, 10:00-16:00 on the 31st of August.
We will introduce cloud computing in general, including covering the best practices around security and you will learn the basics of how to work with the OpenStack based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The majority of the time will be spent in lab sessions on basic usage of the IaaS cloud.
You need to bring a laptop, but no prior experience of using cloud resources are required.
