As of August 13, 2008, all 56 campuses on the shared servers – Delaware, Saranac, and Seneca – have been upgraded to Aleph v18.
The Aleph upgrades have required extensive planning and testing; the actual upgrades of the campus DEV and PROD regions; and post upgrade support. It is a true team effort among OLIS, ITEC and campus staff given the work involved. Many thanks to Nathan Fixler, Karen Gardner-Athey, Paul Hebert, Maggie Horn, Valerie Lehman, Laura Murray, Gail Pawlowski, Todd Randall, and Natalie Sturr for the significant time and effort they have devoted to this project to ensure a smooth transition from v16 to v18. Many thanks to the campuses for reviewing the v18 DEV regions, working through the v18 upgrade materials, the installation of new clients, and your overall efforts to make sure the upgrades went well locally.
And please, no mention of any future Aleph upgrades, at least anytime soon!
