QRIScloud Brisbane Stage 3 - Outage No. 1 Initial Advice


QRIScloud Brisbane Stage 3 - Outage No. 1 Initial Advice

APPROVED R Bull 31/10/2014

FROM: QRIScloud Support

SUBJECT: PLANNED OUTAGES - QRIScloud Brisbane Data Services (St Lucia) - 6:00 am to 10:00 am Saturday 8 November

Please be advised that there will be a brief scheduled outage for users of QRIScloud Brisbane data services (collections, collections development) hosted at the UQ St Lucia data centre:

6:00 am to 10:00 am Saturday 8 November.

This outage will affect all collections currently hosted at QRIScloud Brisbane's St Lucia Data Centre (see list below). Other QRIScloud Collections hosted at QRIScloud Townsville Data Services will NOT be impacted by these scheduled outages. QRIScloud Compute (NeCTAR VM) services will NOT be directly impacted but collections storage accessed by those VMs and hosted at St Lucia will not be accessible.

NOTE: There is a separate planned outage for QRIScloud Brisbane Data Services at Polaris. Please see QRIScloud Brisbane Stage 3 - Initial Outage Advice for more details

This outage is required to upgrade existing collections infrastructure in readiness to deliver the full planned QRIScloud range of data storage services. It requires upgrades to existing equipment at the current St Lucia data centre facility only. Our service provider UQ Research Computing Centre and Vendor SGI have worked with QCIF to eliminate any business hours impact and have opted to undertake the work during the routine maintenance window.

It is likely that services will be restored earlier than the scheduled outage completion time. An advisory notice will appear on the QRIScloud service desk portal when the services have been restored.

If you have any concerns about this outage or need more information, please contact the QRIScloud Service Desk via email or phone +61 7 3346 4223.

QCIF will provide reminders approximately one week prior, one day before and on the day of the outage.
