We're carrying out our annual disaster recovery test on Saturday 3 September and Sunday 4 September.

Every year we carry out a disaster recovery test on Gemini

As part of this exercise, we confirm that production Gemini services can be migrated to a secondary data centre location. This ensures that Gemini can continue to operate if we encounter a catastrophic failure with the primary data centre.

This year’s test will take place on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 September

Activities will start in the standard Gemini maintenance windows. If we encounter any issues extended system outages may be required.
