Many of the systems and services currently available in Reading will be moved to Bologna. We have agreed to decommission a number of
older software packages with the relocation to Bologna. The two main software packages not ported to Bologna will be SMS and
EMOSLIB. We have started advertising MIR, in replacement of EMOSLIB and will contact SMS users about the migration to ecflow. See
the above link for more details on the services to be decommissioned.

If you have any queries about the migration of ECMWF's services to Bologna, please do contact our Service Desk at servicedesk @
