Winter Migration

Published on 6 Feb 2015

We are expanding and improving our server operations this weekend by migrating to new facilities.

The build-up to Christmas and all of January have been a busy time for us as we have been preparing for a migration of our servers to an award winning local hosting provider.

We have selected the Custodian Data Centre in Maidstone to provide our ongoing hosting. Their award-winning facilities currently have a 100% uptime record and will provide power and network resilience beyond what we have been able to achieve so far.

We are planning to move all of our live infrastructure over the course of a few hours on Saturday 7th February. As such our customers may experience some unavoidable downtime while we physically move our servers into their new home. We have prepared the way as much as possible to minimise disruption and will continue to monitor them pro-actively once they are bedded in.

We hope to provide a more thorough write-up of our move once it is complete.

Thanks to all our customers for their patience and we look forward to working with you in the coming year.
