Downtime Scheduled for August 26, 2020
The WRDS technical infrastructure will be undergoing a major upgrade from 8:00 - 11:00 AM Eastern on Wednesday, August 26, 2020. During this time, most WRDS services will be unavailable. The website should only be inaccessible for 30 minutes near the beginning, but interactive services -- including the WRDS Cloud, SAS/Connect, SAS/Studio, Python, R, MATLAB, Stata, etc -- will be offline for the full duration of the window. All WRDS Cloud grid jobs -- both batch and interactive -- will be terminated. Please plan your research accordingly!
This is being done as part of a large-scale effort to upgrade WRDS infrastructure to the latest hardware and network configuration, to provide the best large-scale research platform we can. We hope you notice faster code execution, data access, and network response. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to improve our platform for you.
