The first part of our 3-part upgrade of the Member Trees system completed successfully on Friday without requiring any downtime.
As I mentioned last week, we are spending a lot of effort behind-the-scenes to upgrade this system so that it will continue to meet customer needs as it grows. As part of this effort, we will be upgrading some software on the servers that house this system. These servers also support Genealogy and Rootsweb.
We will perform the second part of this upgrade early Tuesday morning from 12 to 8am MST. We may determine that we need to take down Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com and/or Rootsweb.com but at this point we do not anticipate having to do so. It is possible that during the 3am to 8am MST timeframe on Tuesday you may see some degraded performance of the Trees system.
This is part 2 of 3 planned maintenance windows to complete this upgrade:
Part 1 – Friday, 20 February 2009 – COMPLETE
Part 2 – Tuesday, 24 February 2009 – 12:00 – 8:00 a.m. MST
Part 3 – Wednesday, 25 February 2009 – 12:00 – 3:00 a.m. MST
I will post again to notify you about part 3.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
