Published June 19, 2014

Computing and Information Technology (CIT) plans to upgrade the Wings server hardware during the week of March 12th  during Spring Break, replacing current hardware with new virtualized servers.

The New Environment

This upgrade should significantly improve your experience on Wings-hosted websites.

This upgrade should significantly improve your experience on Wings-hosted websites and enable additional upgrades when performance issues demand them.

The new virtual Wings environment is configured with identical system, libraries, applications and file system to eliminate any functionality issues. We anticipate a very smooth transition.

Website Owners View and Test

It is possible, however, that some of your pages and applications may not function properly on the new virtual Wings environment. If you are a Wings site owner, see the directions for viewing and testing your Web content on the new virtual Wings environment.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please send them to the Wings upgrade project team.
