Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.

In preparation for installing new equipment in the Pawsey Centre as part of the capital refresh, we need to perform work on the electrical supply to the computer rooms. This requires us to shut down a substantial amount of equipment, hence why this is a longer than usual maintenance window.
