The HPSS tape archive storage system will be taken offline at 4 p.m. MDT on Friday, July 23, a few days earlier than previously planned in advance of the upcoming extended NWSC maintenance downtime
. This means less than 70 days remain for users to access files on HPSS.
Though time is growing short until the HPSS decommissioning on October 1, you can still accomplish a fair amount of file-copying between now and then. Currently, you’ll see a good turnaround because the HPSS is not very busy.
