** This maintenance has been completed **

Our datacenter will be undergoing maintenance on the following dates;
  • October 15th, 2013 at 1:00 CEST - 6:00 CEST
  • October 22nd, 2013 at 1:00 CEST - 6:00 CEST

During these maintenance windows SmartDC will perform the following actions:
1) Insert a new linecard into one of our redundant gateway routers, BR2, and spread load over the new blade.
2) Phase out some low density blades to make room for new linecards in the future.
3) Reload one of the routers to enable the switching fabric turbo mode.

Estimated impact;

Our server is directly connected to BR2, so our ports can go down for a few minutes if they need to be moved or if the router requires a reload. Otherwise, a brief hiccup while traffic is rerouted over the redundant links should be expected. During the maintenance window traffic will be sent over our other gateway router, BR3, to ensure minimum impact without downtime. Generally, this doesn't mean the server will go offline, probably a few latency spikes/lag issues. However, it is still possible that it may go offline.

Please do not make topics or complaints about server issues in the host support sections on these dates/times.

Thank you.
