The system is designed to be available 24x7x365 with minimal downtime. New allocations of less than 10TB are usually available immediately; larger purchases typically require several weeks lead time.
Periodic Regular Maintenance is scheduled to match the Hyak system maintenance schedule:
- Hyak will be offline from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. for scheduled maintenance the second Tuesday of every month.
- Every third month, the maintenance window will last from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. the following morning.
Lolo User Documentation is also available.
lolo Support responds to problem reports in one to four hours; response can be escalated if there is a critical problem. Our goal is always to minimize user downtime by responding as quickly as possible.
Planned maintenance windows match the Hyak system (8 hours during business hours on the 2nd Tuesday of every month).
