Upgrades to cause outages to some systems this weekend

University Technology ([U]Tech) will conduct maintenance on a number of systems this weekend, which will result in outages to some programs.

Storage upgrade

As part of an ongoing infrastructure upgrade project, [U]Tech is upgrading some key services to a new storage system Saturday, Feb. 18.  Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., some campus web servers will be unavailable for brief periods of time, ranging from 30 seconds to 5-10 minutes.

During this maintenance activity, it will be impossible for users of the on-campus portion of case.edu to update their sites. This does not affect websites hosted on TerminalFour (T4).

The websites affected include (but are not limited to):

If any of these sites are unavailable for more than 15 minutes, report it to the [U]Tech Service Desk at 216.368.HELP or help@case.edu.
