Urgent Notice: IRLP Yearly Major Maintenance Outage,
August 17 6:00 AM - August 17, End of the day EDT

The IRLP maintenance outage is scheduled from Monday, August 17 6:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time through Monday, August 17 End of the day Eastern Daylight Time.

The IBM Poughkeepsie Facilities team requires an outage to building 003, where our IRLP lab is located, in order to perform significant building electrical service maintenance.

If you want to keep access to your environment, in case your course does not require to connect to any physical hardware (like IBM Power server or IBM z), then before the outage, you can click on Direct Environment Access and save the URL to by-pass this page that will not be available during the outage: your lab is hosted in the cloud and is then not impacted.
If your class requires access to physical hardware, your hardware will be shutdown during the outage. You will not be able to run your labs.

We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause.

Best Regards,
The IRLP support team
