The process involves hundreds of millions of gigabytes of photos and videos (literally billions of photos) and 100+ million accounts. We knew there would be a few bumps in the road, and one of those unfortunate bumps is the need for some planned downtime while we finish the migration. Luckily though, when this step is complete, we’ll be well on our way to a much faster, much more secure, much more stable Flickr.”
