Delayed Start to Data Centre Upgrade: (no longer July 7th)

As previously announced, in preparation for the arrival of Shaheen III, scheduled to be installed in 2023, the four power substations that supply Building 1 Data Centre will be replaced.

Facility Management is requesting a series of tests to be carried out before the shutdown of the data centre can commence. The tests will result in a 4 week delay to the previously announced schedule. A revised shutdown date will be communicated as soon as it is confirmed.


Shaheen projects extended by 2 months

Due to the data centre outage this summer, the RCAC has approved an extension of 2 additional months for all projects that have an expiry date beyond 1st July 2022.


RCAC meeting

The project submission deadline for the next RCAC meeting is July 31st. Please note that the RCAC meetings are held once per month. Projects received on or before the submission deadline will be included in the agenda for the subsequent RCAC meeting.The detailed procedures, updated templates and forms are available here: https://www.hpc.kaust.edu.sa/account-applications.
