VM expiration: 1 year, renewable
Each VM hosted by ci.inria.fr has now an expiration date, fixed in one year from now for current VMs, and one year after the creation date for future VMs. This rule will make us able to clean unused VMs and save ressources for new projects.
These expiration dates are freely renewable, using the dedicated button “Extend” in the VM list associated to a project in the portal ci.inria.fr.
When VMs are about to expire, project admins will be reminded three times by email (with a link to extend the expiration date) starting three weeks before the expiration. Expired VMs will be deleted and project admins will be notified (there will be a 24h delay before expunging, during which the VM can be recovered).
Thank you for your understanding!
