Life Sciences virtual infrustructure upgrades

As you may be aware, our IT specialists have been upgrading the Life Sciences virtual infrastructure.

Our technical team have now successfully completed the final stage of the upgrade by updating the software on the server hosts which also included virtual server migrations.

This milestone now marks the completion of the schedule of works which has been successfully carried out with no interruption to service. We will continue to work on the virtual infrastructure over the coming weeks performing certain house-keeping tasks required after an upgrade of this magnitude. Some of these tasks will require a small amount of downtime for each Virtual Machine however this will be kept to a minimum and organised with the Virtual Machine owner.
