We've received notice from our storage partner, Globus that there will be a brief downtime on Saturday, December 9 from 11am to 3pm (EST). Here is the notice:
As we recently announced, we are working towards making Globus data management solutions suitable for use with protected data and in HIPAA regulated environments. In preparation for that -- and to support some new features in Globus Connect Server version 5 -- the service must be taken down briefly in early December. We are planning for the service to be unavailable on Saturday, December 9th, starting at 10am CST (11am EST), and expect to have it fully operational by 2pm (CST) (3pm EST). During that time all services will be unavailable, and any transfers in progress will be queued for later completion.
