As part of ongoing efforts to improve current and future applications’ resiliency at UTHealth, Information Technology will conduct a disaster recovery test of the data center network at 10 p.m. Saturday, July 22, through 2 a.m. Sunday, July 23.

While IT anticipates the testing will work as planned, there is a chance that any application or system, such as telephones or workstations connected to the UTHealth network, may be unavailable during this four-hour outage.

This test aims to ensure the network continues to provide a stable infrastructure for the university’s needs.

Plan your work around the test time. Applications and systems accessed remotely also may be impacted.

For questions prior to the outage, contact Derek Drawhorn, executive director for communications technology, at or 713.486.2083.
