Shaheen II power uncapped

Shaheen II power will be uncapped this weekend (Thursday 5:00 PM until Sunday 8:00 AM). Around 4,000 nodes will be available. The remaining 2,000 nodes will be drained and not available. This is to allow performance tuning and code execution without power restrictions on compute nodes. This session is open to all Shaheen II users.

The project submission deadline for the next RCAC meeting is 31st May 2016. Please note that the RCAC meetings are held once per month. Projects received on or before this deadline will be included in the agenda for the next RCAC meeting, scheduled to be held in June 2016. The detailed procedure and the forms are available in the following webpage.
