Key IETF service outages on 20 June during transition to new infrastructure

12 Jun 2024

As part of moving to a new cloud infrastructure, the IETF Datatracker and related services will be unavailable starting at 1800 UTC on Thursday 20 June. The outages are expected to last no more than 4 hours; updates will be posted when availability resumes.

In addition to the IETF Datatracker, the following services will transition to the new cloud infrastructure:

  • the www.ietf.org website
  • The IETF Mailarchive
  • The IMAP and rsync services

Please do not plan to rely on the IETF Datatracker or the affected systems during the 4-hour window starting at 1800 UTC on Thursday 20 June.

Any service that relies on IETF Datatracker also will be affected. The following services will not be available:

  • the IETF meeting registration system, and
  • any interim meeting sessions that use MeetEcho integrated with the IETF Datatracker.

The following services will be impaired, with any features requiring logging in unavailable:

Of particular note: posting Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) to the IETF repository will be unavailable during the outage; this includes automated posting of I-Ds via the IETF Datatracker API, such as via Github actions in repositories used to develop I-Ds.

This blog post will be updated once this phase of the IT infrastructure transition is complete.

Next, we plan to transition the IETF mail processing system.

We will provide further updates with information and expected outages during that phase, as soon as those are available.
