Scheduled Maintenance 17th June 2021
15 Jun 2021
**Update 17th June 2021** Scheduled maintenance was completed successfully today.
The work to upgrade the local network of our main server went well and was compleled faster than expected, in under 10 minutes. However, one issue occurred during the maintenance and some false positive downtime alerts were sent out to customers during this time (6am to 6.08am UTC) - these can safely be ignored.
Our main server's local network is scheduled for maintenance on 17th June 2021 at 6am UTC.
Our Upstream Provider will replace a top of rack switch with newer generation hardware capable of 40G networking. This is expected to take 15-20 minutes.
Although our server will remain running during this time the network will be down. Therefore our services will be paused for the duration of the maintenance and will resume immediately after maintenance is completed.
We hate downtime as much as anyone and we've had 100% uptime for over a year now so really dislike our perfect record being reduced.
However, we realise that this maintenance is essential and look forward to the performance benefits it will bring. Thanks for your patience with this.
