Hydra power cut#

Updated on 22/03/2022

We’ve managed to get Hydra back to normal without data loss. The scheduler is running again and the login nodes are open. We’ve requeued all jobs that were running at the time of the power cut.

On Sunday March 20th at 10:15 there was a major power issue in the datacenter housing Hydra. Both the main and the emergency power failed at the same time. All running jobs were lost and we’re having difficulty bringing the storage system back online.

For now all access to Hydra is closed off. We’re working to get it back online as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact VUB-HPC Support.
