New hardware incoming Lustre 112/113 upgrade time

After many years of robust service, our Lustre scratch112 and 113 systems are approaching end of life. We are delighted to say that following significant testing and a procurement bakeoff, we have selected Seagate-Cray as the vendor of choice for our replacement system.

The system will be based around Seagates Nitro SSD cache configuration to get the best fit for our mixed workloads. We look forward to receiving the new hardware by the end of September 2017.
