Please note this schedule is subject to change.

Note: This schedule has been reoriented to be future dates to current date to past dates order
  • Future Events
    • January 2017: Newton storage file systems are to be decommissioned sometime this month. Please move all Newton data to ACF or other locations.
    • late January 2018: Remaining Newton components (infrastructure, storage, etc) of Newton taken offline and are moved to JICS
    • January 17, 2017: Medusa file system planned to be retired.
