Server reolcations for September 2009

Thursday, September 3, 2009

Dear All

This is to let you all know that on September 19th and 20th 2009 (Saturday and Sunday) and we shall be relocating all of our servers to new racks at a new data centre facility in Hemel Hempstead, owned and built by Gyron called the "Centro datacentre"

The new facility has just recently been built and is of a slightly higher standard than the current DC's we occupy, and does not reply on anything from Central London.

Full details of the new facility can be seen here:

We are planning to start the server relocations from 00:00 to 06:00 on Saturday morning (Friday night) and have 2 windows of 6 hours (Saturday and Sunday) to relocate the remainder of our equipment, as some of it has already been relocated.

The maximum downtime any server should face will never be more than 4 hours, but some of our servers that have already been moved, were moved and back online within 2 hours.

Customers should note that absolutely nothing will change at all, all IP addresses, DNS and domains will all be the same, the ONLY thing that is changing is the physical location of our servers.

If you have any questions or concerns at all then please do let us know
