VIC (CIC) CTU has developed a new schedule of possible shutdowns of the CTU IS that will come into effect in 2021 . This schedule has been developed based on the experience of the VIC (CIC) and practically follows the schedules of previous years. Outages are defined in general, not specific dates, so that the schedule can be valid without adjustments in subsequent years. Users will be able to plan their activities for years ahead.

Long-term shutdown of database and application servers + Service Desk application
– 4 times a year, every 3rd Friday in months of April, July, August and October. Duration of shutdown 1-3 days.
