UFIT recently installed a new “blue” file storage system for all HiPerGator users. To transition files from the /ufrc file system to /blue, rolling migrations will be scheduled between June and August 2020.
All users of active group directories on /ufrc received an email notifying them of the pending changes and encouraged groups to plan for communication of the scheduled transfer. Sponsors should receive a second email at least one week prior to their scheduled migration and can suggest a different date if necessary by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. HiPerGator users do not need to move their own data to prepare for using the blue storage. Users should instead remove any unneeded data prior to the scheduled transfer from /ufrc. UFIT will schedule transitions outside of normal business hours to avoid impacting research needs. Once the migration is complete, the sponsor will be notified.
