Scheduled Downtime

ITS: must patch and update equipment regularly to protect Colorado College's Information Technology environment. While we try to minimize the impact of maintenance, we also occasionally need vendor support during maintenance cycles. Not all vendors are available 24x7, and some 24x7 support contracts are prohibitively expensive.

As a result, we have created a schedule defining our committed uptimes and scheduled downtimes.

Table explaining the color codes of the uptime/downtime schedule
  Committed Uptime
We make every effort to ensure all systems are up and running during this window of time.  Emergencies come up, but our goal is to provide better than 99% uptime in this window.
  Expected Uptime
All systems will normally be up and running during this window.  However, if we need to take systems down to do maintenance work, this is the window in which we will do it.
  Scheduled Downtime
Plan on systems being often unavailable during this window.  We will attempt to perform most routine maintenance and system changes or upgrades during this time.

Once per year extended maintenance day

With the majority of maintenance windows moved outside of business hours (see above), we should only need to interrupt committed uptime hours once per year.  We try to minimize the impact to the CC community by holding it the day after Commencement.
