Description

On Wednesday 26th July BlueCrystal 3 and a number of Research clusters will be unavailable for the day (exact times have not been confirmed) due to essential maintenance to the Data Centre infrastructure based in the Physics Tank Room. The downtime in service is due to enhancements to the electrical backup feeding these systems. We had hoped that we could avoid any downtime to services but recent investigations have highlighted issues that mean that is unavoidable. We need to complete this work as soon as possible to remove the risk of future power failures to the room and before UCAS application confirmation begins. We apologise for the short notice and any inconvenience this downtime will cause. Please contact the IT Services Desk if you have any questions regarding this work.
