  • Infrastructure update & plan
Burke describes Jetstream (upcoming replacement for XSEDE)
  • Modern system management capability for us (don't have to file helpdesk tickets)
  • Concerns about uptime (Burke has seen 4 hour downtimes twice over the last month)
Current plan is to put our bigger servers on Jetstream (ones that would cost hundreds of $$ per month on DigitialOcean, which we're using for some things)
Still need to discus with IU sponsors what kind of capacity and LTA will be possible. (Burke needs to own this conversation. He will send some emails today.)

  • Copy JIRA (as-is) to Jetstream and begin using it there
