Getting Started with testflight-coda (Rich to Coda Data Center Migration Guide)

Welcome to PACE's "getting started" guide for testflight-coda! This guide will help you navigate the transition from Rich to the Coda Data Center.

PACE will be migrating from the Rich data center to the Coda data center this year. Full details of our move are available on p. 6-7 of the Spring 2020 PACE Newsletter. The testflight-coda cluster comes with an upgraded system and applications that closely matches the Coda environment users will migrate to later this year. Users are encouraged to use this opportunity to test workflows for all of the PACE queues they use. Please ensure that our new software repository has everything you need. The computing environment and software repository differ significantly from what PACE has in Rich.
