A computing resource for all Australian researchers where they can develop & deploy applications and collaborate in a uniform environment with controlled sharing of data. More details: about the Project (NeCTAR), the technology and the resources on offer.
SA cell has been brought back this morning, we met a couple of hardware issues after the power outage, which results in a delay. We are still doing the service check and tests to ensure every functionality works as expected.
For the old instances , users need to do a hard reboot
The outage was resolved at approx 1630 AEST yesterday (30/11/2014). Users are encouraged to check connectivity to their instances and report any issues to rc-support. Details of the problem and analysis will follow at a later date. Once again, apologies for any inconvenience caused as a result of this outage.
There is an ongoing issue with volume attach/detach operations across the cloud. Users may experience intermittent failures to attach or detach volumes where the dashboard/APIs report the volume as attached but it is not visible from the instance, users may also observe duplicate attachments (i.e., the same volume listed as attached multiple times to the same instance).
This email is to inform you of a scheduled outage in SA
Availability Zone of the NeCTAR Research Cloud in early December.
DURATION: 3 days 6 hours
START TIME: 14:00 ACDT Fri Dec 5th 2014
END TIME: 20:00 ACDT Mon Dec 8th 2014
Between approximately 8pm to 10pm (EST) on 30/10/14 users may have experienced brief but intermittent connectivity issues to instances in the monash zones of the research cloud.
A planned change to border routing configuration at Monash (specifically to enable routing of research traffic via AARNET4) appeared to hit a bug in the routers. This change has now been backed out pending followup with the vendor. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this interruption.
A 48 hour outage is required to relocate and upgrade the cloud storage infrastructure at the University of Melbourne. Only instances in the melbourne-np availability zone will be affected. The upgrade will bring further stability and increased performance to this availability zone.
