Moving the SCRATCH storage in UGRGrid.

April 1st, at 12:00, the SCRATCH storage system will be moved: March 31st, at 8:00, the queuing system will be stopped for this transition.

Due to the ongoing converging process of Alhambra and UGRGrid supercomputers, the /SCRATCH temporary storage system will be unified soon.

This will proceed April 1st, at 12:00, and, from that date, any file previously located in the SCRATCH will be no more available. Therefore, we reccommend saving in your computers the data you may be interested to preserve before that date

In order to achieve this unification, due to the fact that currently-running calculations are indeed  using that filesystem, it is necessary to stop the queuing system for UGRGrid, which will be done March 31st at 8:00. This will allow to save the resulting data of the calculations that could be running till that date.

Since April 1st, both accessing from or servers, the files appearing in the /SCRATCH will be the same (those already accesible through Therefore, we also reccommend to adapt the directory structure already existant in so files resulting from calculations in UGRGrid do not collide with files  resulting from calculations in Alhambra.

We regret any disturbance this may cause, and please do not hesitate to contact us at for any doubt or problem that may arise.
