Update: Academic Commons

The migration of GGC’s Academic Commons to an external server has now been completed. Working out the details of how to synchronize the login database with GGC’s Active Directory took significantly longer than expected, but at this point everything seems to be working properly, so we are opening the Commons back up for business. Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this transition; please let us know if you have any questions.

An Upgrade for the Commons!

An Upgrade for the Commons!

As of last night, both the CPU power and memory on the virtual server running the Commons have been doubled, and there appears to be a noticeable improvement in responsiveness on the site this morning.
