Delivery is expected Monday for our new UPS which will be installed in the 290 Soda Hall server room. Some services will be down for short periods on Tuesday while they are moved off of room power and onto temporary power. Later in the week, there will be a second outage while those machines are moved onto the new UPS. Additionally, there may be a longer outage of our storage systems while some upgrades are done.
While I realize that this post is somewhat vague, a lot depends on exactly when the UPS is delivered and how long it takes to install it. I will be posting more refined notes to narrow down the scope of what services will be out (and when) as time goes on.
While we realize that there may be some inconveniences for some, please bear with us as we strive update our services and minimize outages for the future
