System Maintenance

The maintenance session scheduled from 08:00 on Monday 11th May until 17:00 on Wednesday 13th May has now been cancelled. We will however be taking the opportunity to run some large scale jobs on Monday.


RCAC Meeting

The project submission deadline for the next RCAC meeting is 31st May 2020. 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


Tip of the Week: Backup your important data from /scratch regularly

Any files under /scratch/<username> or /scratch/project/kxxxx that have not been accessed in the last 60 days will be deleted automatically without any warning. These files are not backed up and therefore cannot be recovered from tape. Please remember to back up any important data to your /project/kxxxx folders, /home/<username> directories, or download to your workstations.
