Quest to Oracle Cloud project update

Tuesday, January 25, 2022

What is happening? Announced in the May 14, 2021 issue of the Daily Bulletin, Quest, the University’s student information system, will move from its current on-premises environment to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) environment. Much has been accomplished since this last update, and the project team is pleased to announce that the project is on track to meet the February 2022 go-live target.

When is this happening? The team will begin the work of migrating the on-premises Quest environment to the OCI environment on Friday, February 25 at 4:00 p.m. This work is expected to be completed by 8:30 a.m. on Monday, February 28.

What is the impact?

  • Quest will be offline and inaccessible for the duration of this maintenance window. No client-facing impact is expected as the changes will occur behind the scenes.
  • Once Quest has been moved to the Oracle Cloud environment, hosting of Quest data will move from the University's on-premises datacentres to Oracle Cloud's secure Canadian datacentres, hosted in Toronto and Montreal.
