Good news! We are extending the Forum self-managed server room facility by adding three brand new racks in a nearby room.
Bad news! To arrange the necessary power feeds to the new room, we will need to completely switch off the power to the existing self-managed server room for a short period next week.
The necessary electrical work is planned to start on Monday 3rd July 2017, and should then finish on Wednesday 5th July. Sometime during this period (most likely on the Wednesday, we think), there will be a necessary power-off of around 2 to 3 hours, to allow for final connections and testing.
Users of the self-managed server room have already been notified about this via the ‘self-managed server room mailing list’ (see our Self-managed server room help page if you’re not aware of the existence of that); we’ll keep you updated via the same list.
The end result will be worth it – but we apologize for the temporary inconvenience.
As usual: if you have questions about this, please contact us via our User Support form.
