In Q4 2014, infrastructure enhancements to CME ConfirmHub will be implemented to improve performance and reliability.
|Current State||New State|
|UAT||https://test.confirmhub.com/portal||New Release||https://confirmhubnr.cmegroup.com/portal||18.104.22.168||Now Available|
New Release Environment Migration
Effective Tuesday, October 21, the New Release environment will replace UAT for CME ConfirmHub.
Please Note: As part of the migration, the configuration and data available in the existing Test environment will be migrated to the New Release environment. All configuration and data added and/or amended in the New Release environment until Monday, October 20, will be overwritten with the data and information from the UAT instance of CME ConfirmHub.
Production Environment Migration
Effective close of business on Friday, November 21, CME ConfirmHub will be cutover to the new production environment.
Please Note: There will be no replication of data, or configuration, between both environments during the test period. All configuration and data added and/or amended in the new production environment, between 1700 EST November 3 and 2000 EST November 23 will be overwritten with the data and information from the existing production instance of CME ConfirmHub.
During the migration, the IP addresses will change, and users may have to add a new firewall rule to connect to CME ConfirmHub. This is dependent on the customer's internal setup. CME Group recommends that users add a new firewall rule, rather than remove or amend the existing rule, in case of a roll-back during the cutover weekend.
Deprecation of FTP Connectivity
Effective with this launch, to provide an enhanced security experience, CME ConfirmHub will no longer support FTP connectivity. All users must leverage SFTP via port 22.
CME ConfirmHub is available 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, Sunday, 6:00 p.m. - Friday, 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET).
Certification weekly maintenance window occurs on Tuesdays from noon - 5:00 p.m. Central Time (CT).
New Release weekly maintenance window occurs on Wednesdays from noon - 5:00 p.m. (CT). Customers should not attempt to connect to CME ConfirmHub during the maintenance windows or after 10:00 p.m. (CT) Fridays.
