DE TLD moving to a new data center

DeNIC, the registry of the german top level domain DE, has announced to move the servers that keep the database for the TLD to a new datacenter. According to DeNIC, the old datacenter only offered limited potential for an additional growth of the namespace, which is expected by experts.

According to an article on Heise News, around 11 million customers will be affected tomorrow. Outages are not to be expected, DeNIC claims; however, as an expect, I would suggest that it's always better to consider them as potential.
