Sorry, the server crash is taking longer than expected to resolve. We’re still working on it, we’ll update you as soon as possible.

/global/c is currently unavailable due to a server crash, we are investigating. We hope to have it back online within the hour.

All legacy SHARCNET storage systems (/home, /work and /global/freezer) as well as remaining legacy data transfer and visualization systems (, vdi* will be decommissioned on April 30 2019. If you have valuable data remaining on any of these storage systems you must copy it elsewhere before April 30.

If you have not already done so we strongly recommend that you move all of your computing to the new national systems Graham, Cedar and Niagara. See this URL for help:

We have replaced the /global/c server with new hardware and copied all data. We do not believe that any data has been lost.

Data for some very large storage users is still being copied so it is not yet available. The affected users have already been contacted by email.
