Some More Server-Side Updates Happening on 06.24.11

Hi All,

There are some “new and improved” versions to the underlying frameworks that Membee uses which we’ve been testing in Membee’s test environment and we’re anxious to roll them out on the production servers. These new versions will provide a few minor performance improvements in Membee right away but what really excites us are new capabilities they bring that we’re putting to work in new features which are currently under development.

The changes will happen transparently throughout the day on Friday June 24, 2011 between 8 AM and 4 PM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4) and when they are in place, we need to change one setting in your organization’s settings which may have Membee’s outward facing features (events, directories, member profile, etc.) unavailable to a visitor to your site for 10-15 seconds. During that 10-15 seconds, your site visitor might get a “503 Service Unavailable” status message from their browser. The chances are really, really slim that they will encounter this message.

Both the technical support and customer service teams are working on this so let us know immediately if you encounter anything unusual.

Thanks for helping us to grow the hive!

Minor Maintenance Window for Membee – 06.19.11

Hi Everyone,

We’re doing some core library and driver updates to the servers. The updates are required for some new features that will be uinveiled in Membee over the next couple of months. These updates will require the servers to be restarted and as a result we are establishing a maintenance window on Sunday, June 19 from 7 – 8 AM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4).

During this hour, access to Membee may be intermittent as the servers restart. As usual, we’ll do some testing to make sure Membee is happy when the restarts are completed.
