Final hours announced for the June 2023 SRCF downtimeAs previously announced, the Stanford Research Computing Facility (SRCF), where Sherlock is hosted, will be powered off during the last week of June, in order to safely bring up power to the new SRCF2 datacenter.
Sherlock will not be
Instant lightweight GPU instances are now availableWe know that getting access to GPUs on Sherlock can be difficult and feel a little frustrating at times. Which is why we are excited to announce the immediate availability of our new instant lightweight GPU instances!
SRCF is expandingIn order to bring up a new building that will increase data center capacity, a full SRCF power shutdown is planned for late June 2023. It’s expected to last about a week, and Sherlock will be unavailable during that time.
More free compute on Sherlock!
ImprovementWe’re thrilled to announce that the free and generally available normal partition on Sherlock is getting an upgrade!

From Rome to Milan, a Sherlock catalog updateIt’s been almost a year and a half since we first introduced Sherlock 3.0 and its major new features: brand new CPU model and manufacturer, 2x faster interconnect, much larger and faster node-local storage, and more! We’ve now reached an
3.3 PFlops: Sherlock hits expansion milestoneSherlock is a traditional High-Performance Computing cluster in many aspects. But unlike most of similarly-sized clusters where hardware is purchased all at once, and refreshed every few years, it is in constant evolution. Almost like a
