The HPC system "Research High-Performance Computer Phase I" (ForHLR I for short) will be finally shut down after more than five years of operation on 14 April 2020 and will no longer be available after that date.

The file systems of ForHLR I will remain in operation until 12.05.2020, after which they will also be shut down and their contents deleted. There will be no automatic migration of data to other storage systems, this must be carried out by the users themselves.

To enable this migration, the login and data mover nodes of the former cluster will also remain in operation until 12.05.2020.

As replacement systems, the Forschungshochleistungsrechner II (ForHLR II), the bwUniCluster 2.0+GFB or the bwForCluster operated within the bwHPC initiative are possible.

The SCC asks for timely application of possibly required access rights and - depending on the system - for the submission of requests for computing time.
