This service interruption is needed to replace an older data storage/server subsystem, which is going end of life, with a new database subsystem (Exadata from Oracle). This new subsystem will help handle the growing data storage demands of our system, improve performance, and help to ensure smooth semester startups.
Locally-maintained campus applications will not be affected by the outage, unless they require access to ISRS.
STUDENT IMPACT: During this time, students will not be able to submit applications, search for classes, register, or pay for classes.
STAFF/FACULTY IMPACT: All student, faculty, and administrative applications will be affected, including student eServices (web registration, class schedule, web grades, web payment, student housing, etc.).

System applications such as HR-SCUPPS, Finance, Accounting, Student Housing, Student Payroll, etc., will also not be available.
