We have continued to work with our storage vendor to improve both the performance and stability of the new BisonNet storage software. We have received a number of fixes from our vendor and feel we have made significant progress over the past month. There are still some remaining issues that we’re working to correct, and we have a new update we’re preparing to install. We plan to install the update on Saturday, Feb. 13th, from 9am-noon. While it’s possible there will be no noticeable disruptions, past experience has shown us that some jobs *may* end up being terminated during the update. We certainly apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but these updates are necessary to ensure the long term stability of the storage environment.
We again thank you for your patience. The BisonNet user community has been very understanding through these recent difficulties, and we are extremely grateful for that. If you have any questions or would like to discuss any particular issues you have, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
