We are pleased to announce that we are moving to the next generation
of file storage in EECS.
Our current Network Appliance file storage hardware is approaching
its end of life, and our storage needs continue to grow.
Maintaining our own file storage systems has been valuable to research
and departmental operations, keeping costs down while providing centralized
storage with backups, snapshots, CIFS/NFS access, and room to grow.
Over the coming months, we will be migrating to a new cluster of NetApp
file servers, which will include disk-based backups and mirroring of current
data to the San Diego Supercomputer Center. Some changes to mounting and
some service downtime are expected, but details are still being worked out.
Look for upcoming announcements on how this migration might affect you
and your access to home.eecs, project.eecs and cluster.eecs.
