More database maintenance

Unfortunately our database storage is still unstable, and all Ensembl dbs are being taken offline this afternoon for emergency maintenance work. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

This will affect all UK-based sites, including,, Vega and the archives. The US West mirror,, will be running with reduced functionality (no user logins or BLAST, which depend on Sanger dbs), and the cloud-based should be unaffected.
