No, this is not a software update this time. It is a complete infrastructure upgrade (with the biggest check we ever wrote :)). Zoho is moving to a new home, a new data center with a complete hardware upgrade. This includes new security infrastructure, hundreds of 64 bit servers and lot more.
Our current infrastructure coexist with AdventNet’s (our parent company) infrastructure. This time, it is exclusive for Zoho and is built for future growth. We have been working hard for the last few months on this and I am glad our team managed to get everything in excellent shape. Thanks to different vendors and our operations team in getting our infrastructure ready. Over the next few weeks, we will be migrating our Zoho applications to our new infrastructure which is much powerful than our existing one.
We will keep you informed on the migration schedule of individual applications. While the existing applications will be migrated to our new infrastructure, our new applications (oh yea, we have more coming) will be deployed directly in our new home.
