Sirca – Technical Notice

A quick post to let you know that access to Sirca’s databases will be impacted by some planned technical work next week. This work relates to a relocation of the computer hardware which supports our databases to a new purpose-built facility. Since this means those machines must be powered down, some SIRCA services will be briefly offline. 

The first services to be affected will be Australian Equity Tick History (AETH), Australian Company Announcements (ACA) and Thomson Reuters Global News (TRGN). 

AETH, ACA and TRGN will be offline during 07:00 and 22:00 (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time) on Tuesday 8th March 2011.

Thomson Reuters Tick History (TRTH) for academic users will remain online that day, with no obvious changes expected for service levels. However, TRTH services may be disabled over the next four weekends (12th/13th, 19th/20th, 26th/27th March and 2nd/3rd April) as TRTH dedicated hardware is also moved in stages.

We have tried to time these disruptions to minimise inconvenience to our users and apologise for any trouble this causes.
