Improving the underlying storages of our database environment
Due to a major database restructuring, e-conomic will be unavailable for shorter periods at nighttime over the next week. In addition, we are planning a longer downtime of up to 20 hours on 1-2 April (the Easter holidays Holy Thursday/Good Friday).
In our continuous effort to improve the overall performance of the e-conomic application, we will be initiating a major restructuring of data over the next week. In other words, we are moving customer data files to faster SAN volumes.
The division of data into smaller volumes will eventually spread the load on our system, resulting in a more stable application performance on an overall basis.
The nightly downtime periods will be conducted as follows: March 19-23 between 00.00 and 05.00 am CET. If you are logged on during this timeframe, you will experience that some requests time out. We therefore recommend that you avoid logging on to e-conomic during this time frame.
On 01-02 April, we’re expecting e-conomic to be unavailable from 10 pm CET on 01 April to 6 pm CET on 02 April for data file compression. You will not be able to log on to e-conomic during this period. Should we be able to restore service before 6 pm on 02 April, we will of course notify you instantly here on the blog.
We deeply regret the inconvenience and look forward to introducing you to a faster e-conomic.
