How Long Will It Take? We will have a scheduled maintenance window of 8 hours, during which all sites hosted on legacy North America (Ottawa) data center will be unavailable.
What are we doing?
We will be replicating all databases between legacy North America and new United States data centers. We will also setup a high-speed direct datalink between the 2 locations, to ensure databases are kept in sync prior to the migration. At the scheduled time of the migration we will reconfigure DNS settings and make other related Business Catalyst architectural changes to point to the new data center. We will also need to restart all web servers.
Customer Impact -
During the maintenance window, all sites hosted on our legacy North America data center will experience up to 8 hours of downtime. Affected services include: front-end pages, Admin console, Dreamweaver extension and FTP access.
