Downtime Scheduled for Aug 23rd 2019

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

The WRDS technical infrastructure will be undergoing a major upgrade from 8:00 - 11:00 AM EDT (GMT -4) on Friday, Aug 23rd 2019. During this time, most WRDS services will be unavailable. The website should only be inaccessible for 30 minutes near the beginning, but interactive services -- including the WRDS Cloud, SAS/Connect, SAS/Studio, Python, R, MATLAB, Stata, etc -- will be offline for the full duration of the window. Unique to this downtime only, all WRDS Cloud grid jobs -- both batch and interactive -- will be terminated. Please plan your research accordingly!

This is being done as part of a large-scale effort to upgrade WRDS infrastructure to the latest hardware and network configuration, to provide the best large-scale research platform we can. We hope you notice faster code execution, data access, and network response. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to improve our platform for you.
