PLANNED OUTAGE: Wikipedia.org

13:48 Jan 11 2013 Ashburn, VA, USA

Description
Wikipedia team is moving their Ashburn, VA datacenter, 17-01UTC three days in a row, 22/3/4 January.

The team has scheduled the week of 22nd January, 2013 to perform the switchover. We are going to block a 8-hour migration window on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th. During those periods, 17:00 UTC to 01:00 UTC hours (9am to 5pm PST), there will be intermittent blackouts and they will be treated as 'planned' outages.

You can follow the migration on irc.freenode.org in the #wikimedia-operations channel.

The team is putting the finishing touches to the last few tasks and we will make the final Go/No decision on 18th Jan, 2013. An update will send out then. For those interested in tracking the progress, the meeting notes are captured on this wikitech
page http://wikitech.wikimedia.org/view/Eqiad_Migration_Planning#Improving_Switchover

Please note that we will be restricting code deployment during that week, allowing only emergency and critical ones only.

Thanks.
