New Data Center is Now Live and Accepting Customers

In an exciting development in Business Catalyst’s integration with Adobe, BC’s engineering team deployed a software upgrade this morning to enable our new Adobe datacenter for North America to start accepting new customers. When you choose the North America datacenter to host any sites you create from now on, it will be automatically hosted on the new Adobe datacenter in the United States.

Over the next 2 months, BC engineers will also bring online new Adobe data centers in Asia-Pacific and Europe to meet the needs of our fast expanding community in those regions.

Adobe is committed to ramping up Business Catalyst over the coming years and the new data center is just the first piece of a significant investment in our future. It will provide capacity for growth for our existing partners and room to accomodate new partners and their clients coming onboard.

Migration from Old Data Centers to New Data Centers

One of the most common questions being asked is how to migrate sites from the old data centers to the new data centers. Once all 3 new data centers are live, we will be sharing our plan for migrating all existing sites to the new data centers. This will be taking place using a staged approach until August/September 2010. Rest assured we will give you plenty of notice and communication. We are also currently building tools to automate the process as much as possible to facilitate a smooth migration for you and your clients. Keep in mind that we do not recommend you manually migrate any sites until our automation tools and plans are made available.
