InfoEx Update - 6 February 2013
We have had some further problems with InfoEx recently, and apologize to subscribers for difficulties that have resulted. Our IT department is working hard to resolve these issues and has consulted with previous InfoEx support staff (Yves Richard).
We are in the process of setting up an enhanced monitoring system, but we also request help from subscribers:
If you notice a problem with InfoEx please call the 24 hour support number (1-877-811-8122) as soon as possible.
This will benefit all subscribers by alerting us to the problems and getting issues resolved as quickly as possible with a minimum of system downtime.View Details
The InfoEx Database now appears to be stable again, but CAA staff are continuing to monitor the situation in case more problems arise. If you are experiencing difficulties contact InfoEx support via the link below or e-mail email@example.com.View Details
The InfoEx Database has been experiencing instability recently. The staff of the CAA are working non-stop to rectify this problem. We sincerely apologize for any difficulties experienced by subscribers as a result.
Our short term immediate goal is to have InfoEx up and stabilized. Our medium term goal is to modify the InfoEx environment to prevent further instabilities. Our goal for next season is a rebuilt InfoEx on a consistent platform with robust architecture that avoids these difficulties all together.
We appreciate your patience while we work through this challenge.View Details
