The Real Media “Mole” server will be decommissioned on January 16, 2015

October 16th, 2014

The Real Media (Mole) server will be decommissioned on January 16, 2015 due to unsupported software. We introduced Kaltura as a new streaming media server in fall 2012 (and as a replacement for Mole), and we’ve been working with faculty to migrate onto that platform over time. Given Mole’s end of life, we need to complete the migration of video content off of it. We are requesting that you only move the files you’re actively using since our campus Kaltura license fees are based on the amount of storage that we use.
