Extended Arctos outage for maintenance

Extended Outage: The Arctos databases for both prod and test were taken offline this past Thursday, July 15th, at 10AM Central time for critical hardware maintenance and to move equipment in the data center.  The maintenance and move of the Arctos database at TACC has run into a bit of a delay. The system had to undergo some reorganization which has take longer than anticipated.  The good news is that while doing this needed maintenance, we will be able to use what we’ve learned about its configurations to build a more robust test version as well as future mirrors of Arctos.

As TACC and Arctos teams are carefully bringing everything back online, we really appreciate everyone’s patience and concern for Arctos. Please check back here, the Arctos Twitter feed, and check your Arctos listserv emails for updates.

Thank you for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience.

Sincerely, Arctos Team

Update 6:36 PM Pacific: We’re back online at arctos.database.museum! Thanks again for your patience. Please let us know if there are any issues!
