[will Bogleheads server be affected by Hurricane Irma?]

Post by BolderBoy » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:28 pm

I'm presuming the BH's server will be going down when Irma hits and be down for an unknown amount of time thereafter.

Is that likely correct?

No.
They relocated it to a bulletproof location some months back.
I forget just where...

Servers could be up, but the network(s) could be dysfunctional or not working. I don't think the bogleheads forum is using several servers in geographically diversified locations, but someone will come along and tell me if I wrong.

Even Amazon.com, airlines, and other big players have had problems keeping themselves online sometimes.

It is two miles underground below Valley Forge, PA.

Oh good, I am glad they didn't forget where it was. :wink:

I'm confirming the server is still in Nevada.
