Planned maintenance window on November 13, 2021, 19:00 CEST

In order to maintain WebTranslateIt in good shape we will have to take the service down for a hardware maintenance and reorganization.

Our servers will have to be moved to a different rack in our datacenter.

In order to do this upgrade we will need to be unavailable on Saturday, November 13th 2021, 19:00 CEST (Paris Time) as the servers are being moved. We expect the downtime to not exceed 2 hours. The website will be unavailable from Saturday, November 13th 2021, 19:00 CEST to Saturday, November 13th 2021, 21:00 CEST.

I would like to sincerely apologize for this second planned downtime this year. We already had another planned downtime for maintenance last month and we strive to keep our service up as much as possible. Our hosting provider had a very bad planning and overbooked the rack we’re currently in, which requires us to physically move the servers to a different location in the datacenter in order to maintain our network performance.

Note that this hardware move will require us to change our IP addresses, but this shouldn’t change anything on your end.

As always, we’ll keep you updated on this blog post and we’ll also post live updates on @webtranslateit on Twitter.
