eRA Deployment and Maintenance Calendar 2015-2016

Primary tabs

eRA schedules quarterly system-wide releases every year to bring its system users new features and fixes.  These releases, which usually take place in January, April, July and October, are primarily reserved for items that require the database to be down or for enhancements with dependencies on those items. During these releases, eRA schedules downtime within a specific window to deploy these new enhancements.

eRA also performs regularly scheduled maintenance on its databases, modules and Web sites to provide enhanced IT security and increased network reliability. The maintenance usually occurs on the first Saturday of the month from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The chart below lists the anticipated dates and important information for both system-wide deployment and scheduled system maintenance, timing of downtime and systems affected. The chart will be updated regularly to reflect the most current plans and developments.
