Topic:  Planned PDA Partial Failover to CBU

Date/Time Issued:  May 8, 2020 1700Z

Product(s) or Data Impacted:  Due to planned and impactful IDPS network maintenance, all S-NPP, NOAA-20 and GCOM-W1 Level 1B (sensor data records - SDRs) and other ‘critical’ (data records - xDRs) designated products will be distributed from PDA at the Consolidated Backup (CBU) facility.  Delivery of GOES-16/17, Metop, POES and other data will continue nominally from NSOF PDA and other ESPC distribution systems.  

Date/Time of Initial Impact:   May 26, 2020 1130Z

Date/Time of Expected End: May 27, 2020 1130Z 

Length of Event:  24 hours

Details/Specifics of Change:   PDA pull users should initiate duel-flow, to pull all available products from PDA OPS and PDA CBU, during this event.  This change should be transparent to push users.  Pulls from CBU should continue until 2 hours after the end time listed above, as it takes NDE time to finish all product creation after receipt of the orbit.
