PDSF, the Parallel Distributed Systems Facility has been in continuous operation since 1996, serving high energy physics research. The cluster is a tier-1 site for Star, a tier-2 site for Alice and a tier-3 site for Atlas.

We'll give a status report of the PDSF cluster and the migration into Cori, the primary computing resource at NERSC. We'll go into how we tried to ease the process by providing a stepping stone environment as intermediary between a commodity cluster and a supercomputer. Updates on NERSC systems will be given as well.
