Information Systems has taken the decision to replace UCL's institutional file store following a number of large-scale outages over the past 12 months affecting email, web access, WTS, lecture theatre PCs and cluster room services. The replacement work will take place in the break between the Spring and Summer terms and will involve the two outages above.
