What You Need to Know if Your App or Site Will Be Moving to Media3
Media3 is offering to do migrations at no charge, and has committed to the support necessary to assist with the transition. The Cornell early adopters will work through the onboarding process with Media3, perform validation and testing, and provide feedback about the process over the next month or two.
Some points for hosting customers or IT staff who support them:
- The WebDAV protocol for transferring files will continue to be available.
- At present, for VMs migrating, the managed web hosting layer of this service will remain subsidized by CIT. The costing model will be reviewed at a later phase with the IT Services Committee, with a decision expected no sooner than the completion of the project.
- As noted above, Media3 will move VMs on owners’ behalf, if they wish, or can help move them.
- Site owners will need to validate and test once the move has occurred and before going live.
Hosting Services Not Affected by Media3
All of the following hosting options are still supported and recommended. If your website currently uses one of these, it is not affected by this change and will not need to move. If you are considering one of these services for a new website, your plans can move ahead without waiting for the new service.
