As of Wednesday 18th November over 50% of main grid regions have moved to the cloud via Amazon Web Services. Today it’s believed that the rest of the main grid regions will be uplifted to the cloud.
There is scheduled maintenance today from 7am SLT through until possibly 4pm SLT (maybe sooner) The lab will be performing rolling restarts during this period and so there could be issues when rezzing objects inworld.
AWS (the cloud)
For example Oak Grove is running on AWS. Click on About Firestorm or whatever viewer your using to find out if the region is running on AWS.
You are at 175.6, 115.7, 20.4 in Oak Grove located at ec2-34-220-149-232.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com (18.104.22.168:13004)
(global coordinates 255,408.0, 256,116.0, 20.4)

Linden Lab (data center)
You are at 145.5, 171.6, 24.0 in Debug1 located at sim10376.agni.lindenlab.com (22.214.171.124:13000)
(global coordinates 239,249.0, 343,980.0, 24.0)

Once completed Debug 1 and Debug 2 regions will continue to be hosted at the Linden Lab data center. The next phrase of the cloud uplift will start in terms of improving performance etc. I would expect that to take place sometime in 2021+.
Rolling Restarts and Uplift for SLS Channels
Nov 19, 07:00–16:00 PST
We will be performing rolling restarts for regions on the SLS Channels on Thursday, November 19th, beginning at 7:00 AM PDT. During this time regions will also be Uplifted to the cloud. Please refrain from rezzing no copy objects and remember to save all builds. Please check this blog for updates.

Hopefully before the end of today all regions on the main grid will be in the cloud. Good luck Linden Lab.
The latest uplift updates can be found on the Second Life Forums in the Server section and on the Second Life Grid Reports page.
I will blog more when new updates become available very soon.
