To our campus community,

Last month we sent a campus-wide message to inform you of a necessary shutdown of our Data Center scheduled for Friday, May 31, 2024. After further consideration of potential impacts on campus operations, this planned shutdown will be moved to a new date to be determined in consultation with campus stakeholders. This work is required to support the campus research mission and to provide improved resilience for the Data Center to run on generator power during campus outages.
