- 09 Mar. 2022 - New short partition amd-short for all users So far node802 has been exclusive to researchers of MI. In agreement with the PI of node802, we are making parts of the resources of this node available to all users now. This will be facilitated through a specific partition called "amd-short" that can run jobs up to 4h using up to 64 cores and up to 1TB of memory. Node802 is somewhat different than all other nodes on ALICE which is you should go through the section "Important information about amd-short" before you start using the new partition.
- 01 Feb. 2022 - Node015 is back: Node015 has been repaired and is back in service.
- 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
- 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.
