Due to continuing issues with the new database hardware clearing customs, the hardware deployment and operating system upgrade that had been rescheduled for tomorrow, 2 August, has been postponed. The new date for this deployment is Tuesday, 7 August from 0400 through 1200 GMT.

As previously announced, this deployment will upgrade our database to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 2 and replace all of our database hardware.

The RAMSAN deployment has also been postponed, an announcement of its new deployment date will be made in the future.

Discussion concerning this announcement may be found in this forum thread, the same thread as for the old announcement.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the delays and encourage the training of a long learning time skill during the scheduled downtime.
