eRA Deployment and Maintenance Calendar
eRA releases software on a weekly basis to meet the needs of its customers. These weekly releases take place during the day, require no downtime and are closely coordinated with the relevant business communities. In addition, there are times when we need to bring down systems because of database dependencies. This occurs four times a year when eRA implements system-wide software changes. Those releases, which usually take place in January, April, July and October, are the few times that require eRA systems and databases to be down. These dates are also worked out in tandem with the business communities.
eRA also conducts maintenance on its databases, modules and Web sites to provide enhanced IT security and increased network reliability. This maintenance usually occurs on the first Saturday of the month from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.The chart below, updated regularly, lists the anticipated dates, times and affected systems for both the releases and the maintenance.
