UIS Implementation Window for the Data Center Move

Description: Specific university production services will be unavailable during the implementation window, as required for the moving of the P01 Data Center.

Implementation windows affect systems with real-time data that is available to students, staff and faculty.  Learn more from the Data Center Move news post.


  • Noon Friday, Oct. 6 to 8 a.m. Monday, Oct. 9 
  • Contingency Date: Noon Friday, Nov. 10 to 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13   
  • Planning a complicated data center move requires having a backup window planned. 

Impact: All production services will be unavailable throughout the implementation window. These are the current enterprise applications that we know will not be available. Your CU campus may be identifying others that rely on these applications in order to be active.

Current non-production services are hosted at the eFORT data center (P02), which is not involved in this move but may be functionally impacted by support services in P01 during the implementation window.

Additional campus-specific applications that have dependencies on CU System applications will be unavailable during the implementation window.  Significantly, UIS uploads to OIT applications of bulk employee, student and applicant data will not be available. We will add links here to campus-published lists as they become available.
