From 5 p.m. Jan. 29 until 10 a.m. Jan. 30, computer services located in the Boyd Data Center will not be available. The campus network will remain available, including access to off-campus Web sites. However, UGAMail and the UGA Web site (www.uga.edu) will not be available. Other services not available include OASIS and related student account services, admissions processing, administrative systems, Bulldog Bucks (except University Housing laundry), WebCT, Research Computing Center, streaming media services, MyUGA (my.uga.edu) and any departmental computer services located in the Boyd Data Center. Departmental Web sites and other services not housed in the Boyd Data Center will not be affected.
The power outage will allow Physical Plant and Enterprise Information Technology Services to install a power generator for the Boyd Data Center. This installation will complete a much-needed power upgrade that will provide stand-alone power in the event of a major power outage, allowing critical systems to remain online.
