DR POP Emergency Maintenance 07/10/15 - Completed

    Posted in Service Status by Jon on 06/10/2015 @ 16:28

In the last few moments we have received the following notification from our upstream whom provides primary connectivity to our DR POP (hosting services with IP's in the range 37.26.105.0/24):

"As part of our on-going commitment to provide a quality service to our customers emergency maintenance works are necessary to provide for greater stability and scalability on our Telehouse North infrastructure"

Date: 07/10/2015
Time: 00:01 – 02:00 UK time (estimated duration of outage up to 20 minutes)
Work: We will be performing emergency maintenance work on one of our edge routers on Wednesday 7th October between 00:01 and 02:00 to further increase resilience.  We will begin closing non-transit BGP peering sessions at 23:30 to reduce complexity. Impact: Loss of network resilience affecting our DR POP (where services hosted on the range 37.26.105.0/24 are located)

To summarise, for approximately 20 mins during the aforementioned 2 hour window, we will not have full network resilience at our DR POP as our primary connectivity will be taken off-line for emergency maintenance however, we do not expect to suffer impaired service.

To conclude, no action from clients is necessary, we are merely announcing these works as a courtesy/best practice.

Upon completion of the window we will mark the job as 'Completed'.
