ChemSpider will go offline today for the next 24 hours. We will switch the servers off at around 11am today (give or take some latitude). We will do a differential backup and restore to the RSC servers all changes to the database and switch over to their systems overnight. Testing performed over the weekend has proceeded rather well and we are hoping for a seamless transition, acknowledging that we will have this one day of downtime.

We apologize in advance for any disruptions. We know that there are a lot of people now using ChemSpider services to feed your own systems so our apologies in advance. We expect improved service for all when this transition is complete.

We’ll see you on the other side of this transition in just over 24 hours. Wish us luck…

Stumble it!
