oDesk will be switching datacenters on Saturday February 13, 2010 beginning 10:00AM PST (18:00 GMT/UTC).
We’re making the change to enhance our hardware, increase capacity and improve uptime. During the datacenter migration oDesk.com and its services will be unavailable. Barring unforeseen complications, the entire process should be completed within two hours. Should challenges come up, we may need to go offline again for brief periods over the weekend to make corrections, and we will be sure to notify you if further downtime is needed.
We apologize for the inconvenience but we are confident that this will result in an even better experience for our users.
As is the case with all of our maintenance windows, we want to remind you that you can continue to log time to the last team you were logged into – your oDesk Team client will cache the time, memos and screenshots, and will upload those details to the server when the connection is restored.
If you need to work for a different team during this time, please discuss with your buyer a need to potentially add offline time later.
If you do work through the outage window, please check your Work Diary after oDesk.com resumes service to ensure your time was logged correctly and make any necessary adjustments.
