Planned Research Data Storage Essential Work

As part of the ongoing development of the Research Data Storage (RDS) platform (Isilon), essential work will be taking place on Saturday 5th March.

This will affect access to Research Data Storage (RDS), CSF3, CSF4, iCSF and Research VMs that directly mount Isilon Research Storage on the following dates:

  • Saturday 5th March: RDS will be unavailable from 08:00 and potentially until 08:00 on Sunday 6th March.
  • Sunday 6th March: access to storage shares may again be disrupted if further work is required.

CSF3, CSF4 and iCSF: computational work running on these platforms will "pause" during the downtime, but is expected to recover (as with previous RDS downtimes). Login to these platforms will not be possible during this time.

RDS shares mapped onto PCs across campus are expected to disconnect and will need to be remapped.

If you have any questions about the planned work please contact the Research Infrastructure team as soon as possible.
