All OH-TECH organizations – including OhioLINK – are moving to a new data center. The new location at the State of Ohio Computing Center will provide us with a near-Tier 4 data center that can deliver a higher grade of services and achieve greater efficiencies.

We have worked hard to schedule this move so as to minimize the disruption to OhioLINK end users. However, it is necessary to schedule one maintenance window which will involve a significant outage of all OhioLINK hosted services.
