RotateiP has previously announced the consolidation of our server and Los Angeles server locations.
Starting from May 1st, 2014. We will initiate server migration which will be consolidated into our currently active LA7 location; a Tier-III accredited, SSAE16 Type II certified facility, in the hub of Los Angeles with direct connectivity to over 300 networks. This enterprise-grade facility offers increased power availability, access to additional upstream transport providers, and improved environmental controls to ensure that the absolute best stability, uptime, and service quality is provided to you, your business, and your clients.
Beginning May 18th at 8PM Pacific Daylight Time, we will begin the migration process for our server environment. Each host system will be powered down, carefully transported to the new facility by our engineers, and powered back up. We estimate that the process will take approximately 4 hours to complete for each server, although the exact amount of time required will vary, and we ask that all clients plan for downtime of up to 8 hours in case of unforeseen issues. The migration will continue each evening, beginning at 8PM PDT, and ending each morning at 4AM PDT until all servers have been migrated. The total amount of downtime experienced by each server will vary based on its location in our current facility, but we expect that most systems will be down for no more than 4 hours, and that the greatest impact should not exceed a maximum of 8 hours.
During this migration process, please be advised that you may receive frequent disconnects (depending on the quantity and distribution of services within our LA7 facility, as well as our scheduling). Each notification will include a date for the move; while we expect all servers to be moved on their scheduled date, we will be certain to clearly communicate any unforeseen delays with as much notice as possible.
