New Purchase Survey

ACENET has some funds from its National Platform Fund award to make an addition to the Glooscap cluster at Dalhousie. We've created a very short survey so our users can help direct this purchase. The survey will close February 28. Please see here.

Planned Maintenance

Placentia has a planned maintenance scheduled for February 28 until March 4. Grid Engine will not schedule any job whose run time (h_rt) extends into the outage period. Latest information on this website.

Software Update

  • VASP has been updated to version 5.2.11. The older version is still available.
  • GAMBIT has been discontinued by Ansys. Our existing license will expire on March 6, 2011. Gambit has been replaced by similar functionality in the new versions of Fluent/CFX. Anyone needing assistance with this transition, please email support.
