Data Center to upgrade power supply Sat., August 19, 6 a.m-5 p.m.

The Campus Data Center, which houses servers that run applications like the UC Davis Web site, Banner, DaFIS, Geckomail, secure Web sites, and many others, will be upgrading to a new transformer on Saturday, August 19 from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. The new transformer will allow the Data Center to house additional servers, including high-performance servers that support research efforts on campus, and accommodate the additional cooling systems they require.

During the eleven-hour upgrade, servers will be powered by generators and battery back-up units. No loss of service is expected; however, brief failures are possible.

The upgrade date was chosen to ensure the work is done prior to fall quarter. For any questions, please consult the Status Web page at or contact the IT Express Help Desk at (530) 754-HELP or
