NCI is currently experiencing hardware issues with the equipment used to operate the Nectar Cloud which has resulted in unexpected outages of Virtual Machines running at NCI for several weeks.
The NCI team are attempting to isolate the hardware issues.
NCI will be working with ARDC Nectar Core Services to consolidate the existing workload at NCI so that unstable hardware can be removed. Virtual Machine creation at NCI may be suspended on this hardware while this consolidation is taking place.
We will provide further updates as the NCI team work through the issues.
