Reprovisoning of server hardware, scheduled 5 years ago

We are working to reprovision our server hardware. As this will require restarting several services, we are going to stagger this procedure to minimise server downtime as much as possible.

The primary database and inventory service is undergoing a live migration which will take a few more hours to complete. This will not impact the operations of the website.

Inventory service migration was completed with negligible downtime. Primary database is still going to take a while to migrate, at the cost of being able to keep the site online as we do so.

Live migration of the primary database could not be performed. Scheduled maintenance to solve this problem will be posted shortly.
