*'''01 Aug 2022 - ALICE system maintenance on 22 Aug 2022 - First announcement:''' We will perform system maintenance on ALICE on 22 Aug 2022 between 09:00 and 18:00 CEST. Our primary focus will be the high-availability set up of ALICE in addition to other maintenance tasks. This will require us to take all compute and login nodes of the cluster offline. It will not be possible to run any jobs and access data on ALICE. Until maintenance starts, you can continue to use ALICE as usual and submit jobs. Slurm will also continue to run your job if the requested running time will allow it to finish before the maintenance starts. If you have any questions, please contact the ALICE Helpdesk.
*'''12 Jan. 2022 - X2Go available on ALICE:''' We have added a new option to connect to ALICE. With X2Go, it is possible to work on ALICE using a graphical desktop environment. You can find details on how to set it up here: [[Login to ALICE using X2Go|Login to ALICE using X2Go]]

*'''01 Jun 2022 - Disabled access to old scratch storage:''' As previously announced, we have disabled access to the old scratch storage. '''We will keep the data available until 30 June 2022'''. Afterwards, we will start to delete data so that we can repurpose the storage within ALICE. You can request temporary access by contacting the ALICE Helpdesk. See also the wiki page: [[Data storage|Data Storage]].
*'''11 Jan. 2022 - Early Access phase for new storage system:''' As part of the commissioning of ALICE's new 370TB BeeGFS-powered storage system, we have started the Early Access phase. In this phase, we give a limited number of users access to the new storage system to try it out and provide feedback to us. This way, we can test and evaluate the performance of the new storage system under more realistic conditions with various kinds of workloads. Our goal is to conclude the Early Access phase at the end of January. We have still spots left for participating in the Early Access phase. If you are interested, please contact the ALICE helpdesk with a short description of the jobs that you are running and how much storage you need.
