|10 October 2022. As a result of the Russian missile attack, the operability
of the URAN network has been disrupted: due to a voltage drop in the power grid,
the communication equipment in the data center and the backup generator failed.
Since in the conditions of martial law it is impossible to quickly purchase
server components to replace damaged ones, URAN specialists are working on
their repair and restoration.
On October 12, the network's data transmission channels were restored.
On October 14, DNS servers started working.
On October 16, the operation of the disk storage in the data center was adjusted.
On October 17, the functioning of the URAN network and data center was fully restored.
On October 27, the backup power generator was restored.
|April 2022. GÉANT Association and Vietsch Foundation have launched a special project. Thanks to this initiative, URAN will be able to maintain the Ukrainian National Research and Education Network (NREN), even in the unstable financial conditions of wartime. Funds donated by the European NRENs will be used primarily to cover URAN’s operational costs for network support. This will ensure the further provision of URAN services to R&E institutions of Ukraine during the war. In the future, the funds will be used to replace network equipment that was destroyed or lost during the war – and thus ensure the recovery of Ukrainian research and education as soon as possible.|
