The Auckland Nectar Node will be implementing infrastructure improvements and a data centre reorganisation on Tuesday, Janurary 22, 2019. Demand for this service has grown very quickly, and we're excited to be expanding the resources we can offer researchers.
Auckland Node instances will be unavailable for up to the entire day on 22/01. All instances will be placed in a 'paused' state where possible, which means that they should resume right where they left off. In cases where this won't work, the instances will be cleanly shut down, and restarted afterwards. We will notify users as soon as this work is complete, so that you can get back to work.
We'll send reminders about this. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to us (by creating a Nectar help desk ticket from the dashboard, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or concerns.
