We're moving!

Author: Alec Hipshear

We've been pretty quiet with Conductor for a while, and that's because we've been working on something big: Conductor is moving to Amazon Web Services!


We're outgrowing our current physical infrastructure at Rackspace, fast enough that we need to make a change, but not fast enough that it makes sense to add an entirely new physical server. So, we made the decision to move to a virtualized environment. OIT is interested in using AWS over the next few years, and we're helping them out by being one of their test subjects.


Our current planned date is March 25th, 8:30am to 10:30am. If everything goes correctly, the transition will take 2 hours, and be mostly transparent for public users.

Will it affect me?

A little. When the time comes to manage the transition, we'll need to switch Conductor into a read-only mode, which means you won't be able to access the admin during that period.

Public visitors to your sites will not be affected. The only thing that will be disabled is the admin. Scheduled content should continue to work properly during the transition.
