Thanks for visiting the ICS website at ics.psu.edu.
Our site and systems are temporarily down as we migrate systems to the new Data Center.
Our site will return to full functionality at 6 PM on Tuesday, May 9th.

Questions? Please contact ICS Client Manager Derek Leydig.

ICS-ACI OUTAGE MAY 8th

On Monday, May 8, all ICS infrastructure, including the legacy resources (the Lion clusters, CyberSTAR, BioSTAR, and storage), will experience an outage starting at 8:00 a.m. The legacy resources will be fully restored by 6:00 p.m. on May 8; ICS-ACI will be back up in a limited capacity by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9.

LIMITED CAPABILITY MAY 9 – 22

In this limited capability period, the ACI-i interactive compute and high-memory cores will not be available. Access to basic compute, standard compute, and storage will be available during this time; users may experience longer queue times. ICS-ACI will return to full functionality on May 22.

WHY IS THIS OCCURING?

We are taking this action to move ICS-ACI hardware from Computer Building to the Tower Road Data Center. This migration will allow us to expand and improve ICS-ACI services, adding new cores, storage, and capabilities.
