EOL server migration update

This last weekend (April 11-12, 2015) the EOL technical team migrated the EOL production servers to a new data center.  As of this morning (Monday, April 13, 2015) the migration has been completed and all EOL traffic is being handled by our new servers.  

Over the coming weeks we will be optimizing the EOL back-end to this new environment, which may result in both system performance issues and downtime.  Thank you in advance for your patience.

Should you find bugs or other unusual behavior in EOL during this period, please report them along with your browser information (e.g., Safari 7.1.5) and the day and time you encountered the problem.

If you would like to become part of the team that manages EOL's production, test and development systems, we are seeking an experienced systems administrator who is comfortable in a DevOps environment.  To learn more, please review the job posting here.

Congratulations and a big thank you to the entire development team for all their hard work!
