Chicago DC - Planned Maintenance Window (04/28/2010-04/30/2010) (RESOLVED)

April 19, 2010 at 2:04 AM

Greetings fellow geeks!

All servers located in our Chicago, IL data center location will be undergoing a brief maintenance period that will require approximately 15-30 minutes of downtime per server.

The maintenance will consist of moving servers to a different location within the same data center. This move will lay the groundwork for some of our major service enhancements that will begin next month.

We have tentatively scheduled this maintenance period between the dates of 04/28/2010 and 04/30/2010. The move will happen between the hours of 12 AM and 3 AM CST on those dates.

Further updates regarding this maintenance will be posted here.

UPDATE (04/27/2010 @ 11:35 PM CST):

The previously announced maintenance window for the Chicago DC servers has been scheduled between 12:00AM and 3:00AM CST Friday morning (04/30/2010). The downtime per server should be between 15-30 minutes.

We look forward to continuing improvements for our services, stay tuned for many exciting announcements following the server relocation at the Chicago DC!

UPDATE (04/30/2010 @ 02:32 AM CST):

It looks like our initial estimate of 15-30 minutes downtime per server was a little optimistic, at this time we expect service to be restored within 1 hour to all Chicago servers. We apologize for the extended maintenance period and would like to thank everyone for their patience.

UPDATE (04/30/2010 @ 05:50 AM CST):

The maintenance for the Chicago DC servers has completed as of this time, note for users on Node3 you may notice an additional 10-15 minute outage as your quotas are recalculated, we apologize for this inconvenience. Once again we would like to thank everyone for their patience throughout the maintenance this morning.
