NERC’s ColdFront upgrade and maintenance will occur on Monday April 03, 2022 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. 


– We will be upgrading to a newer version of ColdFront that will support OpenShift Resource allocations. This will cause some outages to the NERC’s ColdFront service.

– After the upgrade, PIs and Project Manager(s) will be able to request OpenShift resources in addition to the existing OpenStack resources.
