The following services are now back up and available again: The terminal servies: UniDesk, UniDeskLR, UniApps, AdminDesk, AdminApps; Samis; Business Objects; the Wiki; Github and general file storage, file sharing ( and desktop computing.


The storage servers are now up and running and we're currently in the process of re-enabling all the existing services. So far everything is looking good.


We've finished moving our storage array and have started the process of recommissioning it. We're currently well ahead of schedule and should be able to begin the process of restoring services over the next few hours.


We've now powered down our storage array and our engineers and Ops team are in the process of dismantling it and preparing to move it to its new home.


Our web-based services are currently being put into maintenance mode to prepare for the upgrades today, as such they are not currently available.
