Unscheduled VPS Service Interruption (4/8/2017)

April 8, 2017 at 8:17 PM

We are currently investigating an issue affecting the OnApp control panel and two hypervisors hosting VPS customers. We have techs on site investigating the cause and working to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. Updates will be posted here as soon as we have more information.

The issue has been identified as a partial PDU failure in the rack servicing our Chicago-based VPS services. This took down two hypervisors and the OnApp control panel server for roughly 60 minutes today (4/8/2017). We have identified the failing PDU ports and will have a replacement installed shortly; service is already restored and VPS services should be back to normal operation at this time.

Upcoming VPS Service Maintenance (12/11/2016)

December 9, 2016 at 5:23 PM

To finalize a software update to the OnApp platform we will be rebooting individual VPSs throughout the day on Sunday, December 11 starting at 8AM. Downtime is expected to be minimal for each VPS, but each VPS may require up to two reboots lasting 5-10 minutes each. We do not have an estimated timeframe for the maintenance completion, however we do not expect any individual VPS to require more than two reboots before the maintenance is finished.

These software updates will allow us to provide faster, more stable VPS hosting services to all customers. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at [email protected] or through our Help Desk directly at https://www.geekstorage.com/my/ under the Support tab.
