Today, Web Services concluded our server migration. We are now running the campus web server and all software through the CITES campus load balancer. We have also migrated to a new database and application servers. During this migration we expanded the number of servers that process our emails to a total of five.
The final migration today to the campus load balancer went off without a hitch. We migrated the site in less than five minutes. I don't expect any issues. However, if you experience any strange behavior today let us know via the Toolbox contact us form.
I want to thank Andrew Hurt at CITES SMG for his help with the migration of our servers. He did a great job working around issues that came up. I would also like to thank the CITES Host Manager, Ben Chase, for handling the numerous requests we had prior to the migration in order to make the transition flawless. I also would like to thank Debbie Fligor for help with the load balancer and Keith Wessel for technical assistance with Shibboleth.
This was a very complex migration. It took a team of people to make it happen.
