- The shutdown should not cause downtime for any core critical applications.
- The technical team has taken steps over the last few weeks to ensure that departments are no longer using the old infrastructure, including communication to let departments know about the changes.
DNS is a protocol standard that contains different types of messages for computers to process and exchange data on the Internet, and resides on many private networks. This protocol standard is how our systems know how to reach and communicate with other computers and systems.
