There is a planned Gemini Disaster Recovery test on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August. This is an annual activity to confirm the capability to re-host services to an alternative data centre location should there be a failure within the primary data centre. 

To support this, there will be a planned Gemini system outage on Saturday 8th August between 4:00am-7:30am and on Sunday 9th August between 5:00am-7:30am.

During this time the system will be unavailable while the test is in progress. If it is necessary to fail back to the primary site, the outage window will be extended to 12:30 UK BST on both days.

Please note that the system will operate normally during times where there is no planned outage.
