AGORACOM Maintenance Alert: Going Down Saturday Night For 3 Hours

Posted by AGORACOM at 10:35 AM on Friday, January 6th, 2012

Please be advised that AGORACOM will be offline on Saturday night for about 3 hours beginning at 9PM EST.

Pursuant to prior notifications over the past 2-3 weeks, we are migrating AGORACOM away from our current host Amazon (Yes, THE Amazon) due to unsatisfactory downtime issues we have experienced with Amazon over the last month.

As promised, we were either going to give Amazon a chance to fix these issues, or migrate to another web hosting provider. Unfortunately, Amazon was not able to provide us the comfort and assurances necessary to keep AGORACOM hosted with them, so we have decided to move to another provider.

In anticipation of this move on Saturday night, we suggest the following:

1. It is Saturday night, so go out and have some fun!

2. If you are going to post any long and intensive material after 6PM Saturday night, save a copy. We don’t expect to lose any data from the last 2-3 hours but

better to be safe than sorry

3. We expect the migration to be very smooth but please let us know if you have any issues on Sunday.

4. Our blog (which you are reading right now)  and Twitter account  will be unaffected during the downtime, so feel free to contact us at either if you have any issues and can’t reach us through the site. Best thing to do is to post comments below.

We trust the above to be satisfactory as we strive to continually provide you with a great AGORACOM experience.

George and the AGORACOM Team
