General migration recommendations

  • If you have a RAC allocation then your allocation letter indicated which systems you were allocated. We recommend that you move to your allocated system or systems as soon as possible.
    • Compute Canada is open to requests for migration to other machines if the allocated system is unsuitable in some way.
  • If you do not have a RAC allocation and your current system is being defunded/deactivated, then we recommend that you move to one of the new systems Cedar (GP2) or Graham (GP3) as soon as they become available.
    • Every user will be able to acquire a Rapid Access Service (RAS) account on any national system.
    • As a rule-of-thumb those users in western Canada (Saskatchewan to BC) should choose Cedar (GP2), and the rest should choose Graham (GP3). This has no particular technical justification; we merely hope this guidance will roughly balance the demand for these two systems.
    • You may also move to a different legacy system. This will be easiest if you are already familiar the legacy system. Please contact your regional support for details.
    • We encourage you to use the Rapid Access Service (RAS) to test your application's performance on new systems as early as possible.

You are encouraged to send trouble reports and requests for adjustments to support@computecanada.ca as soon as you detect a problem. Compute Canada will provide in-depth consultation and support for migration issues.
