We’re migrating repositories to new hardware

Starting today, we will be migrating all repositories to a new storage system which will allow us to improve the service and reliability of Bitbucket.

Over the next weeks, you can expect the following:

  • Repositories will be migrated to our new storage system on a rolling basis and not all at once.
  • During each repository’s migration, it will be placed in read-only to ensure data integrity and reduce risk during the migration.
  • Once your repository is on the new hardware, and we’ve verified consistency, it will automatically return to its original read/write state.
  • On average, each repository should take less than 10 minutes to migrate, but repositories with frequent updates may take longer (up to 30 min in rare cases).

Due to the nature of the migration, we are unable to provide specific timelines for when individual repos will be affected. However, we expect no more than a 10 minute disruption when your repository will be placed in read-only mode.

Thank you all for your patience and support! We are working hard to constantly build a better Bitbucket.
