Reminder: IT service interruption set for Jan. 9-10

December 21, 2015
data center server outage

As shared with the University in early November, our primary data center will undergo maintenance between 6 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 9 and noon Sunday, Jan. 10.

We want to remind you of the impact that this maintenance will have on University IT services, and the resources available:

  • This annual maintenance is critical to the maintenance, testing and repair of our data center facility's infrastructure. We deferred all activities last January due to The Upgrade, and there are now several needs that must be addressed.
  • These activities will affect many IT services, including our enterprise business systems (PeopleSoft) and course management system (Moodle). Email will not be affected.
  • A complete list is available, and an up-to-the-minute status will be available on the University’s IT Service Status page during the maintenance window.

Despite our best efforts to minimize disruption, we understand that this will affect many in our community. Joe Zanmiller, Service Director for Data Center Operations Services, is available to address any questions or concerns.
