Data Centre network upgrade - short break in UoB services and network access between 8am-9am, Tuesday 14 April

alert

[12 April 2015]

As part of work towards the development of a new Data Centre, work is needed to upgrade the current data centre network in the Computer Centre.

This work will take place on Tuesday 14 April between 8.00am-9.00am.

The work will result in a short break in connections affecting almost all University systems and services including:

  • University online services
  • Websites
  • Single Sign On
  • Internet and wireless access

In addition, the break will have an impact on managed desktop performance as connections to backend systems will be interrupted. This could cause a delay in accessing filestore or impact the performance of machines during the outage.

The break should be short but services are considered at risk during this time.  

IT Services apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused.
