Wazoku Infrastructure Update
We are migrating our production infrastructure to the Microsoft Azure Cardiff Azure data centre. You can read about Microsoft Azure security & privacy accreditation here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/trustcenter/cloudservices/azure
During the migration we will also complete the following additional updates:
- Base Operating system from Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 16.04
- PostgreSQL database from version 9.4 to version 9.6
- Nginx Webserver from version 1.4.6 to version 1.10.3
We are enhancing the encryption at rest on all virtual machines. This encryption utilises a LUKS container and uses AES 256 encryption with a 64-character key.
The migration will require a short maintenance window outside core working hours on 17 Feb 2018 between 09:00-15:00 GMT.
