Infrastructure Updates

Kintone is transitioning its infrastructure from our private datacenter to the public cloud on AWS (Amazon Web Services) in the US. New users, who start their free trials and sign up after the September update on 9/8/2019, will be on the new AWS infrastructure. Current users who have signed up prior to the September update will be migrating to the AWS infrastructure in batches over time. The migration schedule for current users will be announced shortly.
