January 3: Scheduled ITSS Data Center Outage

Find out what is planned for and what will be affected by the upcoming maintenance outage.

ITSS is planning a data center outage at UMD on January 3. ITSS will utilize the time to perform UMD primary storage device upgrade. The outage will begin at 1 PM on Saturday, January 3. We expect all services to be restored by noon on Sunday.

During the maintenance window, most of the local services will not be available including UMD web server and eGradebook. ITSS will operate an emergency web server with the system status update as well as links to several important applications supported by University of Minnesota Twin Cities such as Moodle and PeopleSoft. The resources supported by the Twin Cities will not be affected since University of Minnesota Twin Cites is not planning an outage this year.

We will provide further updates on the ITSS web site, the ITSS newsletter, and the UMD TechCenter Facebook site.
