New Data Center
First Option is proud to announce that in the third to fourth quarter of 2016, First Option will be moving to a new production data center and secondary data center. We are constantly improving our equipment and infrastructure in order to keep pace with the demands of our industry. The production site will remain in Commack NY but will be moving to a new building. (see link below) The First Option secondary data center site will be moving to Minnesota.
Some things you should know about this move:
1.) We will announce the implementation dates in the next few weeks. There is nothing for you to do right now.
2.) Customers using third party applications (e.g., Acom, etc.) will need to request new license keys.
3.) There may be an IP change required on your firewall for the VPN tunnel. If this is required, a ticket will be entered and the IP address provided.
4.) Although we do not anticipate any issues, it is advised that customers test the application prior to going live. Test plans typically include totals (AP, AR, GL Accounts, etc), check run (usually one check), and downloads.
