On December 12 2013, we are planning to move all existing CAcert servers to a new smaller rack in the current hosting centre. In this new rack we will also have a new much more compact firewall installed, and a new energy-efficient infrastructure server.
All good news, but the downside is that all CAcert servers and services will be unavailable for a couple of hours. This outage will take place between 18:00 and 23:00 UTC on December 12, and of course we are striving to keep this downtime as short as possible,
In any case, critical services will be working again on leaving the hosting center, but in the case of unexpected complications, it is possible that non-critical services may only be restored the next day.
