blacklight --> greenfield --> bridges,

Notice email:

PSC is preparing to introduce its next-generation XSEDE-allocated system. Bridges is planned to enter production in January 2016 (see 

Blacklight will be decommissioned on August 15, 2015.

For the transition period, PSC will provide Greenfield, a new resource that, like Blacklight, features large shared memory. We are developing the user guide at Note that the content of this document is evolving.

While the computational capacity of Greenfield is less than that of Blacklight, we believe that your project can make good use of Greenfield and prepare you to continue on Bridges. Your accounts on Blacklight will remain active until 11pm EDT on August 15. Any files left on Blacklight’s $SCRATCH filesystem after August 15 will be lost. If you have an allocation on the Data Supercell (DSC), it will remain active for the remainder of your current XSEDE grant. DSC will be accessible from Greenfield and then from Bridges.

If you wish to discuss other options, or if you have any questions, please contact
at your earliest convenience.
