Migrating from Hamilton 7 to Hamilton 8

Hamilton 8 is now in service. At the moment Hamilton 7 is also available, but after 9th April we will no longer have a maintenance contract supporting its hardware and that service should be considered 'at risk'. We plan to withdraw Hamilton 7 from service after Easter. Please migrate your work to Hamilton 8 as soon as possible.

The information in this section and the Hamilton systems page outlines the changes you will see when moving from Hamilton7 to Hamilton8. Please read through it before you begin, to help you migrate to the new system easily and make the most of the new resources. If you have questions that are not answered here, the Hamilton team can be contacted either through the CIS service desk or at Please be patient if it takes us a while to get back to you, we are a small team and expect numerous queries during this time.
