Dear Eden,

Yes, NEXCS, the NERC portion of the XCS will be ending on 31st January next year. Please see below for the announcement made on the Monsoon Yammer group earlier this month.


Dear NEXCS user,

Important message:

NERC’s HPC Strategy Committee has taken the difficult decision that NEXCS will not be available beyond 31 January 2021. Flexibility to participate in future remains (funds permitting). This is to obtain best value for money for the NERC HPC community, and released funds will be invested in ARCHER2 resource. The Monsoon2 service continues.

You will be able to access data on NEXCS for three months after Jan 31st 2021 to allow your simulations to continue running to the end of service and have time to migrate data off the machine.

Please discuss with your project PI where projects will run after Jan 2021.
