Helium Compute Outage

March 27, 2014, 3:00PM: The Helium cluster is now back online and ready for use.
 
March 27, 2014, 1:00 PM: The chilled water pipe repairs are complete. Work is now starting to recommission the Helium cooling infrastructure and the Helium cluster. At this time our best estimate is that the system will return to service before midnight tonight.
 
March 27, 2014, 9:00 AM: Facilities Management has indicated that chilled water repairs are moving more quickly than expected with resolution expected this morning. The HPC team is working with Facilities to determine a timeline for bringing the system back online.
 
March 26, 2014, 6:00 PM:  Facilities Management is estimating that work on the chilled water pipe could take " a day or more" as the needed repair is a substantial undertaking. 
 
March 26, 2014, 2:00PM : The Helium cluster is offline due to chilled water maintenance. 
 
Required repairs to the campus chilled water serving the Lindquist Data Center and other buildings will begin at 2pm.  We do not have an estimated completion time from Facilities Management at this time but will update this page when we do.
At this time, Helium will be shut down for the duration of the work. 
Apologies for the inconvenience -- we'll post again when Helium returns to service.
