We expect no downtime, but web services might be unstable around 6pm, but should stabilize no later than 6:15pm.
Most people will not notice any change, except that the web server will be much faster. And while the old server was very reliable, the new cluster gives us an even more robust and flexible environment.
This upgrade pertains to all [research websites](https://iris.eecs.berkeley.edu/10-services/web-technotes.html#upgrade) that are hosted on this server.
The software upgrade will affect a small number of people who have put passwords on part of their personal website. We will be contacting those individuals directly by email to let them know [what they will need to change](https://iris.eecs.berkeley.edu/10-services/web-technotes.html#upgrade).
If you would like access to the new server in advance to test out your personal website, please contact help@eecs and we will send you the necessary information.
