Over the coming weeks, ITS will move the Anne Belk Data Center to our new remote data center. While this is a major undertaking, the move has been carefully planned and timed to create a phased approach, and to have the least impact possible on campus productivity. Our ITS team has met with many areas of the university to understand Appalachian’s commitments during this time and to make the appropriate allowances.
Please note the first outage will take place over the Thanksgiving Break. Students who are working on projects on campus over the break should be aware that wireless access in residence halls will be unavailable on the morning of Wednesday, November 26. Wireless access will be available in academic and administrative campus buildings for students during this time, via the “ASU-Visitor” wireless network.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the planned outages, please contact Lisa Burwell at email@example.com. More details about the Data Center move are located on the website: http://cio.appstate.edu/about/news/data-center-move.
Below is an overview of the move:
Wednesday morning, November 26
Saturday, December 20
Saturday, December 27 through Monday December 29
