Migration Preparations are Underway!

Our Evergreen servers have arrived! There are 18 servers in total, with enough power and room to handle our member libraries, plus room for growth!

We’re just now working out the details of our migration plan. Melissa Lefebvre, our Open Source Project Manager, is sketching out our time line as I write this. We plan to bring our libraries up on a version of Evergreen 2.0, the release that King County is coming up on later this month. We’ll start with our ten development partners – we will move them over to the new servers sometime in early 2011. Then we’ll bring in the East Haven Public Library. We hope to have them up on Evergreen in early March. Then we’ll focus all of our energies on migrating our 48 public libraries off of Horizon and onto Evergreen by Memorial Day weekend. After that, we’ll move the Bridgeport Public Library and its branches over later next summer. Lastly, we’ll make sure that our 19 K-12 schools are up on Evergreen in time for the new school year, September 2011.

Whew! That should keep us busy for the next year!
