SCS Wean Hall Machine Room - Power Outage

DAY/DATES: Wednesday, September 6, 2023 4:30 AM to 8:00 AM (Estimated)

SERVICES AFFECTED: Cluster computer nodes in the Wean Hall machine room will be shut down for temperature mitigation.

DETAILS: On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, the WEAN Hall machine room (MR-A) will be affected by a 2+ hour (estimated) power outage due to an issue with a transformer. This will impact our chilled water cooling systems. As a result, our team will be proactively load-shedding during the outage. We plan to power down cluster compute nodes at 4:30am. We estimate power restored by 8:00 am. Once power is restored and our cooling systems are back to normal operation, we will power on all of the impacted compute nodes.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns regarding this extended outage.
