The Mountaineer High Performance Computing System will be retired soon, so researchers must move all data off Mountaineer by Monday, April 29 if you have not already done so. Mountaineer will no longer process jobs after Friday, April 19, and any jobs left in queue or running will be cancelled. 

You must have data retrieved from Mountaineer and stored elsewhere by Monday, April 29 if you need continued access. Any data stored after that date will be eliminated. This includes data in your scratch directory, as well as data in your home directories or anywhere else on the system. The Mountaineer server will be retired on Wednesday, May 1 and no longer accessible.
