Memorial Day Weekend BRF Data Center Downtime

What’s happening: The HSC Chief Information Office is investing in improvements to our business continuity capability for the education and research computing environment. This requires a major power upgrade to accommodate new, higher capacity uninterruptible power supply systems in the BRF data center.  
This work will require a complete power outage for all servers and storage systems in the BRF data center, which includes all HSC-hosted websites and applications, for the majority of Memorial Day weekend.
Maintenance Window/Downtime: The work will take place from Friday, May 24 at 4 p.m. through Monday, May 27 at 8 a.m.
Please note: There will be no impact to email, Cerner or other production clinical applications.
Questions: Please email before, during or after the downtime window.
