March 5, 2014 :: Scheduled datacenter downtime for server Tempest

Discussion started on Server Updates & Outages

A link to this post is being emailed to all customers with an account on "Tempest."

The datacenter needs to physically move our server "Tempest" to a new location within the facility.   This will require the server to be powered down, moved and restarted.  This should equate to around 30 minutes of complete downtime for this server.

To limit the impact as much as possible, this has been scheduled for:

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
4am Eastern

I know that we do have a number of international customers on this box and this isn't going to be ideal for everyone.  If you're in that situation and 30 minutes is going to be an issue, please reach out to me via ticket or email.  This server will likely be retired at some point in 2014 so I'm happy to migrate you in advance of Wednesday if needed.

Thank you,

Reminder that this maintenance will occur tomorrow morning.

I will update this thread once the migration is complete.

Thank you!

This was completed successfully this morning.  The downtime was monitored at approximately 11 minutes.
