Upcoming Downtimes

Center Announcements

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.

Orion availability in Slate

Slate user workloads may now mount the Orion file system. Workloads that use to run against Alpine should be modified to run against Orion. For details on the new annotation for Slate Orion support, please refer to the Slate documentation topic: https://docs.olcf.ornl.gov/services_and_applications/slate/access_olcf_resources/mount_fs.html

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.
