Here is an update on our server upgrade project:

Stage #1 – Purchase: Purchase of the data servers
Stage #2 – Build out: Installation of key software packages
Stage #3 – Transfer: Transfer of current data elements and services
Stage #4 – Mirror / Compare – mirror data and compare with our current servers
Stage #5 – Release - transfer domains and release to public

Initially we were in Stage #1/#2. We are very happy to say we are now moving into Stage #3. The reason for the major delay is for 2 reasons. We had hardware failure on the new server and a new part had to be ordered. Due to COVID, obtaining parts takes a little extra time. This has now been resolved and we are now able to move forward.

To define Stage #3 – this represents moving all current database structures from our current servers to our new ones. This will take some time as we have several databases to move. In addition, we have several database jobs that must be rebuilt on the new server.

We expect this process to take approximately 1 to 2 weeks. After we have validated the data transfers, we will then begin Stage #4.

We will provide bi-weekly updates going forward. Thank you for your patience in this transition and investment into our future.

Sincerely,

REX Information Technology Team
