IMTS will be performing a Disaster Recovery Exercise on Saturday 25 July. This will be a full day outage from 6am to 8pm and is a necessary legislative requirement to replace our Fire Control Unit. This requires us to power down the data centre.
The Fire Control Unit (FCU) is a critical piece of infrastructure that protects both hardware and people in the event of a fire. Issues with the FCU resulted in the major unplanned outage last December that impacted key University recruitment activities.
Critical services such as Internet, WiFi, phones and email will continue to operate from our secondary site throughout this full day outage. Moodle and Echo360 will also be available throughout the day.
