17 January 2020

We are having maintenance work on the Pure servers over the weekend of 25-26 January. Pure and Explore Bristol Research will still be available for the majority of this time, however there will be some short periods of downtime (expected maximum 2 hours). The maintenance work runs from 7am-4pm each day. Information also available on our Twitter feed and the IT Service Status page. 

16 January 2020

Pure has successfully been upgraded. We are now looking towards the next major release which we're hoping to move to in the next month as it contains a lot of updated REF functionality. 

6 January 2020

Pure will be upgraded to version 5.15.3-2 on Thursday 16 January. The downtime is scheduled from 7am to 8:30am. The upgrade is minor and users will not see changes, with the exception of users who are proposing outputs for REF which do not yet have a published status. This issue is specifically what the bug is fixing so that users will be able again to propose outputs in other statuses.

Since moving to a cloud-hosted platform in November, our e-mail server for Pure is now based in Denmark, which is where the Pure HQ is. As a result, any e-mails from Pure (such as notifications or reports) are currently coming from "purehosted@atira.dk". This is a secure and genuine source. We are hoping to be able to move the server back to the UK in future. Any questions, please contact us on pure-support@bristol.ac.uk.
