The Infrastructure Group
The Infrastructure Group (TIG) provides service-oriented computing, communications and operations assistance to support the world-class research underway at CSAIL. On the technical side, TIG handles everything from maintaining and monitoring a complex computing infrastructure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensuring lab members can access cutting-edge computing services and in-person support. TIG maintains the lab’s four on-premises data centers as well as hosting in off-premises facilities. Additionally, TIG actively promotes CSAIL research to the broader MIT community, reputable news organizations and the general public via a full-range of media relations and communications services.
Central systems are recovering from Tuesday’s Ceph/OpenStack outage. Some OpenStack virtual machines may require a hard reboot. Major lab services should be up and fuctioning.
TIG is available Mon - Fri, 9 AM - 6 PM US/Eastern Time

Creating a ticket via e-mail is always preferred, but you can also reach us by phone and leave a voice mail if we are unavailable.
When leaving an off-hour message via voicemail you may be waking up an uncaffeinated sysadmin. Reserve off-hour voicemails for emergencies only.
