Center Announcements

OLCF Alpine file system will be decommissioned in less than 2 weeks

The Alpine file system will be decommissioned in less than 2 weeks. Data remaining on Alpine will be permanently deleted on January 01, 2024. We strongly urge you to migrate any needed data now.

More details on the Alpine decommission timeline can be found at https://docs.olcf.ornl.gov/systems/2023_olcf_system_changes.html

User Assistance Center Schedule

The OLCF User Assistance Center will be closed on December 25 and 26 due to ORNL-observed holidays. The normal user assistance schedule will resume on Wednesday, December 27.

Orion is now available through Jupyter

Jupyter notebooks now have access to the Orion file system. Please note, the Alpine filesystem is no-longer available through Juypter.

Globus V5 Transition (Jan 08)

Globus will no longer support transfers through Globus Connect Server version 4 after January 08, 2024. All external transfers must transition to the Globus Connect Server version 5 prior to January 08. To aid in this transition, new version 5 endpoints are now available named “OLCF DTN (Globus 5)” and “OLCF HPSS (Globus 5)”. All external transfers must transition to the “OLCF DTN (Globus 5)” and “OLCF HPSS (Globus 5)” endpoints before January 08. Please begin using the V5 endpoints now and report any issues to help@olcf.ornl.gov.

Data Curation for the Exascale Era

As the OLCF’s first and only data curator, Alex May’s job primarily consists of evaluating datasets developed by computational scientists before they are made public through the OLCF’s Constellation portal for open data exchange.
