Hydra Cluster Down for Pre-announced Maintenance

Dear Hydra users,

The Hydra Cluster is currently under pre-announced maintenance

This is an attempt to apply I/O sub-system reconfigurations to render its high-speed File Systems (GPFS on DDN9550) more fail-safe. In this maintenance we have no new HW to use but we will attempt to replace the dead I/O nodes with other nodes that are (still) alive on the cluster but of the same age.

We will be making announcements as things progress.
