University network and data centre upgrades

Information Services will be upgrading the University’s virtual networking platform throughout January. This essential upgrade will improve the security, performance and resilience of the Universitydata centres, on which many University services and applications run, e.g.Moodle, eStudent Records and many more.

We expect the work will below impact and cause minimal disruption, however the upgrade does have thepotential to affect any service hosted from the University data centres for a short period of time. As the work progresses, if we anticipate any unavoidable service disruption then this will beplanned and communicated.  

This notification is to make you aware that this work is happening and to ask for your support and understanding if we do experience service disruption. We aim to complete the work with as little impact as possible, however communications will be released as and when needed for unavoidable disruption.

Thank you for supporting Information Services in keeping the University, its people and its essential services safe.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the IS Service Desk.
