Changes at the DMC

Space, the final frontier. No, the DMC is not moving to the soon-to-be completed international space station but we are expanding into the recently-abandoned office space adjacent to our current offices. With the addition of 2 more employees and the possibility of even more in the near future, we needed to expand our horizons, literally. The acquisition will nearly double our usable space so we can finally build a “real” computer room for our big servers.

Because of this major equipment move, event processing will be down for 2 or more days sometime in April. We’ll keep you posted about actual dates. Now is the time to send in any big data requests you might be contemplating!
