Subject: NOTICE: Upcoming extended downtime for Fedora Project Communishift
You are receiving this email because you are in the Fedora Project
Communishift system group that tracks users who have been
granted provisioning ability in Communishift.
We would like to notify you of some upcoming extended downtime
for the communishift cluster. As some of you may know, later
this year the Fedora Project is moving entirely out of our main
datacenter in Phoenix, AZ, USA (where the communishift cluster
is currently located).
We explored various options to migrate the cluster to minimize
downtime, but we just don't have extra hardware or resources to
setup a duplicate cluster anywhere currently. So, unfortunately,
that means we will need to power off the cluster, ship it to a
new datacenter and bring it back up there.
The estimated timeline for this looks like:
2020-04-13 - power off, derack, pack and ship
2020-04-20 - Arrival at new DC (or before)
2020-04-23 - Unpack, re-rack, cable, network
2020-04-30 - Reconfigure/reinstall
2020-05-08 - fully back in service
Note that these dates are subject to shipping and availability of
people to rack and setup and other items beyond our control.
We will update the following ticket with progress/status:
To be ready for this outage, we recommend you back up all your
application configuration and data. Due to network changes we may
have to reinstall the cluster and thus you may need to reload your

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist
you during this move or if you have any questions for us.
