Data Center Maintenance - Sept. 12

To: UC Santa Cruz Staff

From: Lisa Bono, Information Technology Services

This Wednesday, September 12, from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., ITS will be performing additional work to the campus Data Center network switches. There will be a 2 to 5 minute period when the systems/applications hosted in the Data Center are unreachable and the Data Center VPN will lose connectivity.

This work greatly improves network connections and increases our capacity to provide additional network redundancy in the Data Center.

There will be no impact to the campus network/phone/wireless connections outside the Data Center, and there is no impact to Science DMZ or the Hyades cluster.

If you have questions, please submit an IT Request ticket at or contact the ITS Support Center by email, telephone 459-HELP(4357), or in-person Kerr Hall Room 54.
