Datacenter Relocation and Downtime 
As you already know we have relocated our datacenter. We now have tier1 Internet connectivity and more space.
All that came at a cost of downtime. We went offline roughly Friday afternoon and did not come back up until really fully functional today (Tuesday).

Some of the problems were not just related with relocating the servers. That only took a few hours.
The main issue was our main core router that did not like the new settings and gave us problems.
The server SSL certificates have also been replaced with fresh ones corresponding to the new IP subnet we have been allocated.

Last but not least, the current issue, an UPS unit.


The last issue at this hour we need to address is replacing the UPS unit on our border router which is dieing and keeps going offline, thus throwing the router offline with it.
That happens randomly but it will get addressed today.

Please check back here often for updates.

Network Area Storage 
Last night we started upgrading one of our new fiber layer 2 switches. This connects our Vault load balancer to our cust01 and cust02 servers back to our main Cisco switch.
As you already know these 2 servers provide the Vault and Gallery services.

We upgraded them from 2 x 100Mbps lines to 1 Gbps fiber channel.

There were some issues that have been resolved as of 10:30PM on 6/17/08.

More maintenance due today, later in the afternoon.

Please be advised and take note. Data Vault and Picture Gallery will be down for maintenance reasons around 8:00PM - today.

Full service should resume no later than 10:00PM.

Any questions or problems should be directed to support.

Regards
