Although it was delayed from its planned roll out last year, Lord of the Rings Online’s new datacenter is now ready for deployment. Executive Producer Athena Peters announced yesterday that the datacenter will be activated during a January 11th update:
We are finally at the point at which we are ready to announce the opening of the new datacenter with all new hardware! It has been a long road as we purchased and set up new hardware with updated operating systems, transferred all the data from the old worlds to the new and had to correct systems that had trouble with the transition for 32-bit to 64-bit processing. But all of that is past us now and we are pleased to announce that on January 11th, 2016 we will come down for a maintenance window at 5am EST and come back up around 3PM in our new home!
