GitLab moving to Google Cloud platform - Reactor downtime

#1

Hello all,


GitLab (all of it) is moving from Azure to the Google Cloud Platform on July 28. Since Reactor and its content are hosted on GitLab, this means that there will be a moment or two of downtime for Reactor. One of those moments will be today, another next weekend. See the above link for more information and exact times.

GitLab is expecting they won't take longer than an hour or two, but you never know...

In any case, should you experience any problems with Reactor on these dates, this is why. Nothing wrong with Reactor or with your copy of Fusion, nor is there anything we can do about it other than patiently wait.

So if there is anything that you wished to get from Reactor today to get you through the day rather than, I don't know, go to the beach or something, now is a good time to do it... :)

"There will be a short maintenance window on Saturday, August 4 at 13:00 UTC. We will perform a test of approximately 1 hour. This will help us verify some of our fixes to make sure the switchover goes as planned."
