Beginning around 9:00 AM PST on Thursday May 28, we're going to start the monumental task of moving all the ATS data to our new servers.
This will begin by placing ATS on a "write lock" to prevent the posting of new threads, posts, uploads, private messages, etc. while the data
migration is taking place.
Next we're going to confirm data integrity and run a few final tests and checks… as well as synchronize your uploaded files with the new system.
Once we're happy that all the data is properly integrated, we'll make changes to the DNS so that traffic eventually starts hitting the new server. If
you've experienced the write-lock, then suddenly you can post again, you'll be on the new server.
While we've done this before, ATS has never been this large or complex. So please be patient as we upgrade our core infrastructure.
That is all.
