miRBase website “at risk”, Thu 10th to Fri 18th Nov

Due to server room refurbishment, the miRBase website may experience some instability between Thu 10th and Fri 18th November 2011. The plan is for just 30 minutes or so down time at either end of that period, but the website should be considered “at risk” throughout. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Posted in down time.

    Hi, Sam.
    How about set up more mirror for miRBase?
    It makes miRBase more robust, right?

    Hi James

    I don’t feel robustness of the miRBase website is a major issue — I think the total time we’ve been down for over the last year is less than a couple of hours. So the headache of setting up and keeping multiple mirrors in sync doesn’t feel like a big win. I’d be happy to hear from people if their experience doesn’t match this — for example, if they find the performance of the website is limiting.
