Data Archive Offline for Maintenance

1230 BST 21 July 2010

The data archive is now offline for scheduled maintenance for 24-48 hours. This will affect the Data Archive, Recent Data and Quicklook pages. Normal observing and use of the Phase 2 system to program observations remains unaffected.

UPDATE 1200 BST 22 July: Maintenance is progressing well and we hope to have the data archive back up later today, tomorrow morning at the latest.

UPDATE 1630 BST 22 July: Maintenance work complete, data restore in progress. The archive is now expected to be back online tomorrow morning, Friday 23 July.

UPDATE 1550 BST 23 July: the data restore is taking longer than expected to complete. Apologies for the delay.

UPDATE 1100 BST 25 July: data restore completed and the machine is now available for use. This maintenance work has increased our storage capability by a factor of twelve in anticipation of data arriving from upcoming new instrumentation currently under development.
