WestGrid Legacy Systems Defunding Update

“Defunded” means that the system is no longer funded, operated or maintained as part of Compute Canada’s national cyberinfrastructure platform, which is funded through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) Major Science Initiatives (MSI) program. Local institutions may choose to keep a system running, which may result in usage limited to a certain group of users (e.g. only those from the local institution).
