We plan to perform some site maintenance on August the 16th, starting from approximately 6pm UK time. That's 10AM New York, and 2AM Tokyo.
We expect mbed.org to be unavailable for one hour. After that, the site will be available but in a read-only mode, while user accounts will be re-enabled one by one over the following hours.
We are moving!
mbed is moving to a new datacentre in the US. This will mean:
- A faster and more responsive mbed for the majority of our users
- Much more capacity and room to grow
- Better resilience and reliability
What's that about user accounts?
In order to move, we must copy all the user data (your workspace) to our new infrastructure. However, it will take several hours to copy. To avoid downtime during all of that time, we will bring the site back up in a read-only mode in the new location, and re-enable users one by one as their data is synchronised to the new site.
It will take several hours to complete every single user but if you have logged into the site within the past month, your account should be re-enabled within an hour or so.
If you try and log in and see a message saying that your account is unavailable, please try again in a few minutes.
Thanks for your understanding during this essential work, and apologies for the relatively short notice.
