Storage fabric merge (Part I)

This weekend the technical team will be implementing the first in a series of changes designed to allow for the eventual decommissioning of university datacentres.

  • What changes are we making, when?

We will be merging one half of the resilient storage networks between JBC (Life Sciences) and CER2 (Dow Street) on the 13-14th June – the remaining half will be merged on the 20-21st June.

  • ž Why are we making changes?

As part of our agenda to “transform the way we do IT” we aim to achieve operational excellence – we must enhance the resilience of our systems to achieve this gold standard and further safeguard your data.

  • ž Will this affect me?

A full risk assessment has been undertaken and minimal impact is anticipated, although should any problems arise we will endeavour to respond promptly and keep you all updated.

If you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact the IT Service Desk quoting change numbers 696 and 697.
