This work has been postponed and the Ensembl site is now running as normal. We will update the blog informing you when this work is rescheduled.
The Systems team at the Sanger Institute need to carry out emergency maintenance to some of the database servers running the ensembl websites from 9.30 am tomorrow morning. This means that we will be running the live Ensembl site with reduced functionality and the Pre, Vega, NCBI36 and archive sites will temporarily be off line.
Blast, Biomart, user-logins and search will all be unavailable. The entire Ensembl website should be considered as “At risk”, however should the main site go down the two mirror sites, uswest.ensembl.org and useast.ensembl.org should still be available although these too will have reduced functionality.
We apologise for inconvenience this may cause and will work to ensure the disruption occurs for the shortest time possible.
