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 past Data Center Move (DCM) news stories.


  • Noon Friday, Oct. 6 to 8 a.m. Monday, Oct. 9  ETA: The implementation extended to Oct. 10.
  • 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 systemwide applications that we know will not be available.  CU campuses identified others that rely on these applications in order to be active — see the links to campus-specific lists below

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.

Campus applications

Additional campus-specific applications that have dependencies on CU System applications will be impacted during the implementation window.  Significantly, UIS uploads to OIT applications of employee, student and applicant data will not be available. Here are campus-specific lists of impacted applications and their audiences:

CU Boulder Impact Assessment
CU Denver Impact Assessment
CU Anschutz Medical Center Impact Assessment
UCCS Impact Assessment

While this post serves as the impact assessment for CU System Administration, some offices have posted specifics to prepare their customers for the DCM impact to their services:

We encourage those whose business operations and services will be interrupted to inform their customers weeks in advance.

Thank you for your cooperation as we complete this essential move. Please reach out to the UIS Service Desk with questions at 303-860-HELP (4357) or help@cu.edu. The UIS Service Desk will maintain normal hours: open until 5 p.m. on Oct. 6 and reopening at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 9.
