On Tuesday November 10th starting at 11am CHPC staff will be making a change in how the authentication to samba mounted spaces is handled. This process will take 2-3 hours and during this window users may experience failures during the authentication step when initiating a mount. If this happens, please wait a few minutes and try again.
CHPC is going to start offering tours of the University of Utah Downtown Data Center where most of our production systems reside. The tours are limited to 20 people, and depending on continued interest we may schedule more in the future.

HIPAA-compliant Servers at CHPC
CHPC’s security expert Wayne Bradford, along with John Hurdle, Bernie LaSalle and Julio Facelli at BMI, has published a case study of the HIPAA-compliant environment at CHPC. The study shows “how an HPC can be re-engineered to accommodate clinical data while retaining its utility in computationally intensive tasks such as data mining, machine learning, and statistics.” Access to CHPC’s secured servers requires double authentication: first, users must have access to the CHPC virtual private network; and, second, users must be listed in the HPC network information service directory. Additional security is provided by housing the physical hardware in our data center that has controlled room access. All CHPC employees and the users of the secured servers are required to take the U’s Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act training. The HIPAA-compliant environment is put to good use. Wayne reports that “in the first 3 years, researcher count has increased from 6 to 58.”
