Scheduled Downtime this Friday, 6/10

The datacenter that hosts is shutting down from Friday 6/10/2011 at 9pm to approximately Saturday 6/11/2011 to 9am, a duration of 12 hours.  This maintenance window is necessary to allow University Information Services to upgrade power infrastructure.

Most Harvard staff, students, and employees should already be aware of this planned outage, but we were remiss in notifying our non-local or alumni bloggers earlier. We apologize for the short notice.

We will be returning 503 error codes for page requests. More info on why at google’s webmaster central blog.  We will have staff and extra equipment on hand to ensure a smooth transition.
