SGD Servers Moving to new Data Center

November 21, 2012

Many SGD tools and resources will be unavailable from Tuesday afternoon, November 27th, until Thursday, November 29th because we will be moving all of our servers to a new data center. This new data center will provide a more secure facility, a faster network, and a diesel generator to provide electricity in the event of a power failure.

You will be able to search the main SGD database during this time. However, many tools and pages, including the following, will be unavailable: Pathway Tools, YeastMine, Downloads/FTP, SPELL, GBrowse, Textpresso, and the SGD Wiki.
