Bamboo cluster on production

Dear users,

We are pleased to announce that our brand new Bamboo cluster is finally in production as of today, 1 July 2024.

This has been a very long process. We had to make a number of adjustments in the Biotech datacentre to prepare a new home for it: new electrical cabling, fiber connection to the network, new racks, fire detectors, etc. We were quite busy as well doing the configuration and preparation of the cluster.

But the waiting is over, it is now fully configured and ready to go.

Important note: the home storage on Bamboo isn’t backed up yet.

Enjoy the new gem, make it crunch numbers, benefit from the brand new fast home storage.

Thanks to many colleagues and partners who helped make this possible: DiSTIC, FCBG, SciCos, Dalco.
