Computer Data Center Outage Update

We are working on bringing up systems but are experiencing some problems and issues that we are solving.
Wireless can be used through Wolverine WiFi (not Wolverine Secure).
Banner is estimated to be up around 4:30pm MDT.
Email is receiving email from off-campus but is not yet available for people to read or send.  An estimate of when it will be back up for use should be available within the hour when system checks are done.
Login to Canvas are a high priority but no estimate is available yet, however we expect this to be up within the hour.
Other systems may be up based on their condition and the ease of bringing them back up.

We ask your patience as we work through these issues as quickly as we can.
