Kaltura Status update

Kaltura has invested heavily in migrating our SaaS solutions to AWS cloud infrastructure. This move will dramatically increase the scalability, availability, and security of your video platform, right when we all need it most. We have been working on this for months and the actual migration to AWS was completed over this past weekend, between August 29th & August 30th . The migration went well; however, not without some pitfalls. We are ironing out a few unavoidable issues around performance optimization, uploads, and doc conversion services. These are the causes of what many of you have experienced over the last couple of days. And while we are making progress against the backed up processing queue, it may take until Friday for the level to return to normal.
