The SRE team will run a planned data center switchover, moving all wikis from our primary data center in Virginia to the secondary data center in Texas. This is an important periodic test of our tools and procedures, to ensure the wikis will continue to be available even in the event of major technical issues in our primary home.
The switchover process requires a brief read-only period for all Foundation-hosted wikis, which will start at 14:00 UTC on Wednesday March 1st, and will last for a few minutes while we execute the migration as efficiently as possible. All our public and private wikis will be continuously available for reading as usual, but no one will be able to save edits during the process.
