ABiMS services availability

Saturday, November 4, 2023

The building hosting our computing and storage facilities has been damaged by storm Ciaran in the night from Wednesday to Thursday. As far as we know, the infrastructure itself has not been damaged.

However, this event took place during a planned service interruption and for security reasons personnel has yet to be authorized to access the building. As a consequence, we cannot proceed to a proper power up the hardware that had been stopped earlier this week, and most of our services are still unavailable. All our apologies for this unforeseen turn of events. We will inform you with more precise information about the end of the service interruption as soon as we can.

Main services impacted by the event are :

  • Access to the SLURM cluster.
  • Access to the project storage space.
  • Access to the majority of web applications :
    • BenthOBS databasing, data access services and visualisation tools.
    • Cahiers de Biologie Marine web site
    • Cyanorak web application
    • Eukmap web application
